222 vs 223 recoil

Among others, the Barnes Varmint Grenade, the Berger Varmint HP, the Hornady NTX and V-Max, the Nosler Ballistic Tip and Varmageddon, and the Remington AccuTip V are available in .204 caliber bullets. ©COPYRIGHT 2020, THETRUTHABOUTGUNS.COM ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

On the other hand, faster rifling twists are much more common with the .223 Remington and it’s possible to find rifles chambered in the cartridge with 1:12″, 1:10″, 1:9″, 1:8″ and even 1:7″ rifling twist rates that can stabilize longer and heavier bullets.

The .223 Remington lags behind the others, but it’s no slouch either. The Ruger 10/22-compatable rifle is set up to use iron sights and a sling just like a shooter would use when shooting in centerfire competitions. Most people who talk about the .22 are speaking of the .22 long rifle rimfire. The table below compares the recoil produced by those cartridges when fired from 8.5 pound varmint rifles: a Remington Model 700 SPS Varmint for the .204 Ruger, .223 Remington, and .22-250 Remington and a Model 700 Varmint SF for the .220 Swift. Felt recoil will vary from shooter to shooter and rifle to rifle, but free recoil energy is still a useful way to compare cartridges.All four cartridges have an exceptionally mild recoil and virtually any person, regardless of size or age, should be able to handle them with ease. The rifle pictured here is an M1 Carbine lookalike built from a Brownell’s BRN-22 receiver. I myself would also chose a 22LR, I have seen good size deer drop with a head shot. The .204 Ruger is not well suited for big game hunting at all. The author did not place a comma after “target practice” and therefore “target practice” and “recreational shooting” are to assumed to be a single item making a list of two items. As you can see in the photo below, there are some pretty major differences between the .204 Ruger, .223 Remington, .22-250 Remington, and .220 Swift cartridges. A dedicated .22LR magazine would then be used to feed ammunition into the rifle. It was. You didn’t happen to join the NRA in 1952 did you?

At one time, Ruger produced both their No. That sounds like a fun collection to put together.

No body paid much attention to how game was taken as long as you didn’t get greedy or stupid.

However, as we’ll discuss in a minute, the .22-250 Remington has massive advantages when it comes to ammo and rifle availability. Will you deter everyone? Of course, 6.5mm Creedmoor is to .308 what .308 is to .22LR. No, man, you want .350 Legend – it blows them all out of the water!

Grammar wars and caliber wars. One could say if one learned on a pellet gun the same is also true.

The vast majority of predator and varmint hunters probably agree the .204 Ruger, .223 Remington, .22-250 Remington, and .220 Swift are all excellent cartridges for pest control. Thanks for your support. P.O. The quest for ever increasing velocity is not a new phenomenon and really picked up steam during the early 20th Century when the widespread adoption of smokeless powder opened up a whole new world for cartridge designers. I’d bet money that this is not bad grammar, but an editing oversight; it was originally a list of two, and the sentence wasn’t edited to accord with the added item.

By and large, most bullets used in the early days of the cartridge were simply too fragile and quickly fragmented at the high impact velocities common with the .220 Swift.

I have quite literally never met someone, even some of the crazy gangbangers I’ve known, who thought “Getting shot isn’t a big deal because I’ll go to the hospital”. In addition to the impressive external ballistics of the cartridge, the .220 Swift also exhibited devastating terminal performance on small game like woodchucks/groundhogs, prairie dogs, coyotes, foxes, etc. Almost wound is going to be fatal eventually so nobody is going to press home an attack where someone is shooting at them.

After many months of training with the M14, I was introduced to the M16. Pushing a 55gr bullet at around 3,300fps (1,330 foot pounds of energy), the .223 Remington couldn’t quite match the paper performance of the .220 Swift and .22-250 Remington.

While it can inflict lethal injuries, it’s not ethical barring an extreme circumstance such as emergency survival, in which case anything goes.

The CMP has updated their rules to include optics up to 4.5x in their various Service Rifle matches which will make it easier to transition from optics-legal rimfire matches. Frankly, the specs for the .223 cartridge case neck should have been stretched just a bit to better allow for longer heavier bullets.

Now best known as the 220 Swift, the original load fired a 48 grain bullet at a screaming muzzle velocity of 4,140 feet per second (1,290 foot pounds of energy). When combined with lighter, smaller diameter bullets, new cartridges using smokeless propellant like the 7mm Mauser, .30-40 Krag, and .30-06 Springfield led the way out of the black powder era and offered massive increases in velocity over common black powder cartridges of the day like the .38-55 Winchester, the .44-40 Winchester, and the .45-70 Government. The rifle has been tricked up a bit with an aftermarket trigger and a glass bedded thumb hole stock and shoots like a dream. (here, here, and here for the .204 Ruger, .223 Remington, and .22-250 Remington and p214 of the Hornady Reloading Manual for the .220 Swift).

Probably in 3 or 5 years.

I’ve found many Fudds who claim to have X years experience really have 1 year of experience repeated X number of times. I shot both of these species way back when for a living( export venison meat sales) I shot with four companions in Fiordland New Zealand, both on the bush and along the tops. Excellent article John! Winchester makes a 45gr .223 varmint round. Low recoil also means that there will be no flinch developed in the long term.

While all three other cartridges are virtually non-existent in semi-automatic rifles, the .223 Remington is extremely popular in semi-auto platforms. However, a couple of factors have substantially increased barrel life in .220 Swift rifles in recent years though. The .223 is not some magic bullet. The .22-250 Remington is the next most common.

John, Great article, great comparisons.

The .220 Swift was also available for a short period of time in the Winchester Model 54 rifle.

For the purposes of this article, I will be referring to the .223 Remington and 5.56mm NATO (first officially used in the M16 rifle) collectively as “.223”, even though they are technically different in a couple of ways. For instance, the Hornady Varmint Express factory loads for the .220 Swift and .22-250 Rem have identical ballistics shooting the same 55gr V-Max bullet at 3,680fps.

We were dirt poor and 22 rifles and ammo were cheap and readily available. The CMP offers a variety of competitions for both the .22LR and .223.

Tom in ore can probably tell stories of poachers loving the 10/22. The difference between them grows somewhat when comparing handloads, but the .220 Swift still only has a slight edge over the .22-250 Remington. 6.5 Creedmoor vs 243 Winchester Review & Comparison, 6.5 Creedmoor vs 7mm-08 Remington Review & Comparison, 6.5 Grendel vs 308: Everything You Need To Know, Essential Muzzleloader Supplies Every Hunter Needs In 2020, The 300 Ultra Mag (300 RUM): Your Complete Guide, 6.8 SPC vs 6.5 Grendel: What You Need To Know, 6.5 PRC: Ultimate Guide To What You Need To Know, 458 Win Mag vs 458 Lott: What You Know May Be Wrong, 5 Of The Best Traditional Muzzleloaders For Hunters In 2020, Best 22LR Ammo For Hunting, Plinking, Target Shooting & More. Most youngsters start off with a .22 when they begin shooting, frequently with a bolt action or lever action rifle. He recommended it be put on the approved State List of deer cartridges but the Neanderthals that were in charge of the game department were aghast. Good luck with your .220 Swift! The low ammunition weight makes it appealing for those who want a gun, but don’t have the need for a full-size pistol or rifle. They’re all also available in a wide variety of plain old soft point bullets from a variety of manufacturers.
