    Every .22 calber rifle I have or have had that shoots bullets in that weight range has been most accurate with Barts 52 flatbase. This includes .222, .223. And 22BRs.

    This is my 26" Tikka barrel 12 twist , third test with 64 berger. (Now discontinued) but the 60 Berger would be similar. 20191208_161504.jpg

    Try the Sierra 60 grain flat back.
    You might be pleasantly surprised.

    My go to prairie dog bullet for my 223 ackley rifles is 40 gr vmax for the last 25 years. All of my barrels have been 12 twist Kreigers .The vmaxes are pretty accurate in my varmint rifles and really explode nicely on the dogs. My chronograph shows a little over 4000 fps out of the muzzle. Kills Them Dead !
