The . 222 Remington was introduced in 1950 and quickly became the favorite caliber of many shooters and hunters. The “Triple Deuce” found a lot of success as a benchrest caliber due to its inherent accuracy and the small caliber/high velocity combination made it a great choice for all types of varmint hunting.
222 gives good neck tension, and allows for excellent bullet concentricity, which just might be part of the accuracy magic. While the . 222 Rem. was an immediate hit among the varmint and predator hunters, it also came into its own in a new type of shooting competition: Benchrest.
Hornady Brass Features:
- Tight Wall Concentricity – Concentricity helps to ensure proper bullet seating in both the case and the chamber of your firearm. Higher concentricity also aids in a uniform release of the bullet on firing, for optimal velocity and accuracy.
- Uniform Case Wall Thickness – Benchrest shooters have long known that uniform case wall thickness is vital to accuracy. We manufacture to extremely tight tolerances to ensure this critical element is as consistent as possible.
- More Reloads per Case – Hornady brass is treated as the foundation for an accurate cartridge, not a commodity. Because they take greater care in its creation, you’ll get more reloads from Hornady brass.
- Consistent Weight and Capacity – Every single Hornady case, regardless of the lot in which it was produced, is virtually identical to other Hornady cases in the same caliber. For you, this means consistent pressures, velocity and accuracy — every time.
