I built this one using XP100 action , it a tight neck 222 which the case are never
sized , you just reprime case add powder and bullet and you are good to go .



this is 10 shots out of the 1st 20 shot I shot in gun at 100 yds

That's some fine shooting!

I don't think with my eyes I could do that from 10 yards let alone 100. I don't know much about that cartridge is that based off the .222 swift?
222 remington was before the 223 which is very close size and in the 60's and 70's
the 222 was king holding all the world records till 6 PPC came about . The reamer I
used on this gun only did two other guns and the were both world records holder and the
brass I'm using set a world record in the 70's . I built this gun in late 80's I think

John,
The .222 still holds the world record for group, as far as I know, .009 for five rounds.

Your right 9/23/73 Mac MacMillan , Did it with a light varmit rifle , which the
class as my rifle with TN 222 with .246 neck which is the same spec as mine .
Thank you for information . Now I say TN 222 is still KING instead of was .
Scope is a 36x B&L on it and less that 100 rds fired in gun , I guess I need to
drag it out and start shooting it .

This gun will shoot 2" at 200 yds . I made this around 1985 to shoot cast bullet
[no gas check] and smokeless powder . Was the 1st Civil war cartridge , used
by snipers . I've redesign rim to use modern brass in modern gun .
