Could a 22x47L be as accurate as a 22 Dasher?

    I was wondering if anyone has picture of the cases side by side or case capacity of the 22-25-, 22-250AI 220swift, 220 swiftAI,22-243,22-47L 22 Dasher, 22BR 22BR-AI.
    Some must be very close to each other.

    Thanks
    Hal

    I've had two 220 swift rifles, both have been exceptionally accurate even with temp sensitive powders. Factory Rem 700 could shoot .25 and .375 readily with 4064 or H380. 50 or 55 gr. Bullet's at 3850 to 3950 fps.

    Only down side was using 40 or more grs. Of powder.

    Clancy,
    More verification that the Berger 80.5 do work well.

    Thanks for the post. Makes me feel better. I've already got the pasture picked out to get a very large sample very quickly. After the first day or two I should feel perfectly at ease. We have LOTS of coyotes around here. Not too tough to kill 10 or 12 in a day on good ground.

    Have you had any get up at all?

    Yes but they were bad shots and really tough coyotes. One blew its shoulder out and it ran 3 legged about 70 yards and the other was shot in the mouth, it didn't go anywhere but I had to shoot it again to kill it.

    Haha, I feel like I have more friends when it gets cold.

    Although, there are several guys around that are better or have better land.

    WOW.... if you have that many coyotes there... I WANT TO COME VISIT YOU. My 22-243AI and 20-250 AI were built for shooting them doggies at long range.

    Uh oh.... just got an invoice from Manners, won't be long now.

    What are the odds that my H4350 and stock became available on the same day, haha??

    I have a 20x47 and it's one of the most accurate rifles I have ever owned. 3/4 inch at 300 many times. Shot just over a 1 inch group at 550 yard with it last weekend. I think the 47 case will give you the accuracy you want.

    Short answer, yes it can. I think this is my favorite rifle I’ve ever had.
