I am wondering what bullet weights and twist rates where used back in the day when the 222 ruled for bench rest shooting. I seem to remember most shooters using the 52 grain HP flat base bullet in the 222. M995 mentioned the use of 45 grain pills. I wonder if BR shooters started out using 45 grain bullets in 14 inch twist barrels and then switched to the 52 grain bullet in 12 inch twist barrels??? I know that each gun is different, but what are some good proven bullets to use for BR shooting in a 14 inch twist barrel? My local reloading shop has a good selection of .224 bullets but is very short on powder. I scored 3 cans of IMR 4198 so I will be using that for now. I would appreciate any info regarding loads and twist rates used when the 222 ruled BR shooting. Thanks!
