Well, long range relative to a .222. I've read for a long time that the .222 Remington was an excellent 200 ~ 300 yard round. I've been checking out the performance of my .222 with its 24", 1:12 McGowan barrel. The rifle likes Berger 55 grain bullets (BC of .256) with 23.4 gr of N133 propellant which yields just over 3000 fps. Shoots them into nice little groups at 100 yds. So I got out my ballistics guesstimates and calculated what the load would do out to 500 & 600 yards. The software estimated that The bullets would remain supersonic to just past 600 yds (1208 FPS @ 650 yds) This would indicate that use at 500 yards would be reasonable. The test will begin Thursday, weather permitting. Anyone have ideas or suggestions?
