Later shipents of the stocks didn’t have that stamping, for reasons that should be obvious. Pest control AND target practice and recreational shooting are probably the two most common uses of the modern .22LR cartridge. I’m not saying your wrong but those factors come in to play with .22 and any suppressed weapon. It’s quite interesting to to see facts on velocities and trajectories rather than the rifle owners biased opinion about “my gun shoots better and further than yours” story. Regards, Clint Walker. I don’t know how many were made. If one can learn how to hit with its slow moving bullet especially under windy conditions shooting a high power rifle is a piece of cake. But if you have a geared up, armored up bunch of guys coming after you short of having a SAW you aren’t going to make it anyway. This means I will earn a small commission (at no extra cost to you) if you make a purchase. Some Service Rifle match guns I’ve tested over the years built for 600-yard matches display recoil so low that you’d think you were shooting a rimfire. If you are on your own in wilderness then you will be eating small game so anything larger not suitable for hunting.
Respect the animal!
plays hell with one side of a concrete block…while leaving the other side unscathed…. In this article, I’m going to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the 22-250 vs 223 vs 204 Ruger vs 220 Swift in order to give you the information necessary to choose the right one for your needs.
Thanks for the comment Thomas! 5.56 in a 22-250?
Coming soon- .32ACP vs .50BMG. As I referenced earlier in the article, the .220 Swift performs best at near maximum velocity. The Rimfire Sporter events held at Camp Perry are a great way to enjoy your .22LR and you don’t need to have an expensive tricked out model to do well. Almost wound is going to be fatal eventually so nobody is going to press home an attack where someone is shooting at them. Your “half my life” comment smelled a bit squirrely. too long…and too heavy…(used to play with one when I was a kid)…most jap small arms were crap…. I’ll eat my hat if that stairwell scene wasn’t an homage to Hitchcock. The story I got with my Ruger M77V was that Ruger did not produce a 26″ barrel (came later) and to test the market the first 1000 produced came with a Douglas varmint weight barrel. What was the point of this article? Good luck with your .220 Swift! When you have Army generals describing the .223 as inflicting horrendous wounds, and that it has no place in civilian hands, lines parroted in the press and by politicians who would have them banned, or as “high power assault weapons” that fire “60 rounds per second,” the unknowledgeable general public thinks these are truly scary weapons. 22-250 vs 223 vs 204 Ruger vs 220 Swift: Ammunition Selection The .220 Swift was also available for a short period of time in the Winchester Model 54 rifle. In a pinch it can get the job done. I shot in my first big competition at the Camp Perry National Matches when I was a junior in high school. Those are both among the fastest commercially available loads available in any caliber. Thanks for your comment George! Of these, 50 grain, 55 grain, 62 grain, and to a lesser extent, 75 and 77 grain bullet weights are most common.
I don’t even know exactly what Mr. Ackley said.
My hand loads running a 39gn Sierra blitzking on 26.5gn of ADI AR2206H will consistently shoot under .5 moa 5 shot groups at 100 metres. Of the group, the .204 Ruger has by far the mildest recoil and is excellent for hunters and/or shooters who want to observe bullet impact through their rifle scope. By the same token, the .22-250 Remington is well known for excellent accuracy across a wide range of loads. yeah,..hard to make that argument….when you see deer running around in the woods with arrows sticking out of them…. Glad you enjoyed the article Michael!
As expected, each of the large bores turned the water jugs inside out in spectacular fashion – albeit with significant recoil (the .458 was the mildest, owing to the heavy weight of the stock and action).
I’ve owned rifles chambered in .223 for years and have found it to be a very versatile cartridge and a pleasure to shoot.
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.
Well, Joe Scarborough says that the AR-15 is more powerful than the M14, so I’m going with that. 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. This often resulted in a horrific surface wound that was not immediately fatal. I see what you did there you sly bastard. The other three cartridges use Hornady factory loads. As I’ve stated before: the .204 Ruger, .223 Remington, .22-250 Remington, and .220 Swift are all excellent rifle cartridges. Now times and laws have changed so the old ways have passed to time. Just take a 50 round box of .223 and fill it with 22lr then count the rounds. Not surprisingly, the resulting cartridge was capable of even higher velocities than its parent and Wotkyns submitted his brainchild to Winchester for commercial development. John. Consider upgrading your membership for less than a box of bullets! Some people think about things and plan for bad situations. For one thing, advances in barrel metallurgy since the 1930s have resulted in more durable rifle barrels. They’re all also available in a wide variety of plain old soft point bullets from a variety of manufacturers. 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.
I think the only part that would have been left of a prairie dog would have been the pawprints.
By the way, I have also heard the opposite from those who want to downplay the power of 5.56/.223. The latter is something that an older child would be more capable of handling. remember feeling comfortable taking a hike in the woods in the springtime with nothing more than my hi-standard sentinel for company…for snakes and such…until I came upon a fresh bear track! All 3 are fun to shoot and challenging to find a specific load that works best in each one. The .204 Ruger is especially great for small creatures like prairie dogs and foxes, though it will certainly do the job on coyotes as well. I get asked a lot what is the best rifle round to start with. Other 222 offspring include the short 221 Fireball which was later necked down to make the 17 Remington Fireball. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. No. The Varminter was also much more versatile than the Swift. The .223 Remington wins hands down here since it’s arguably the easiest to find and least expensive centerfire cartridge in the United States.
Of the group, the .223 Remington is by far the best for hunting big game because more rifles chambered in the cartridge have a fast rifling twist that’s capable of stabilizing longer and heavier bullets. Theory behind it’s use was that the round could be fatal as well as injuring an enemy soldier. A gun like this is perfect for both beginners and seasoned shooters looking for a challenge.
Furthermore, those loads achieve that performance with virtually no recoil and while burning significantly less powder than the .22-250 and .220 Swift. They are much more likely to hit you with a ton of facts. Absolutely not.
Low recoil also means that there will be no flinch developed in the long term. It also has has significantly less recoil than the .223 Remington, .22-250 Remington, and .220 Swift, which really says something because they are all mild shooting cartridges. At one time, Ruger produced both their No. Next Last. Your wrong about the .223 not being powerful enough for deer. I would suggest you get a copy of Ackley’s books at the library or buy them on line.
Handloaders can obtain faster velocities with the .220 Swift, but factory ammo for the the .204 Ruger usually shoots at a higher velocity. There were a relatively few M16s that did indeed have “Made by Mattel” stamped on the stock, because Mattel made some of the stocks. John, Great article, great comparisons. However, due to the faster rifling twist normally found on rifles chambered in .223 Remington, it can accurately shoot longer and heavier bullets than the other cartridges. I’ve found many Fudds who claim to have X years experience really have 1 year of experience repeated X number of times. If they don’t have extra flashlight batteries they probably won’t be armed either. You get so many people who just repeat ad infinitum what they got from the internet these days. Both the .22-250 and .220 Swift are very flat shooting, retain more kinetic energy, and have less wind drift than the .204 Ruger and .223 Remington. I smell bullshit. All of the other cartridges, including the .223 Remington, retain significantly more energy at longer range. Of course, I critically weighed every charge, and was very careful in prepping the cases.
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. 1 of 3 Go to page. He wanted his “toy gun”. My comment is very simple. Plus, you’ll be introducing lots of dirt to your AR gas system because .22 LR rounds tend to leave a lot of residue behind. But all are based on the basic 222 Remington case. Due to the wide variety of semi-auto rifles and large supply of ammunition designed specifically for the task, the .223 Remington also has a major advantage here.
When used in a quality rifle by a skilled shooter, they’re all capable of tack driving accuracy.
I must however disagree with the point about not using these calibers on animals the size of red deer and elk. Thread starter GlennGTR1; Start date Dec 28, 2011; 1; 2; 3; Next. The swift being considerably heavier. Using a lighter calibre in these circumstances offered less noise and surrounding animal disturbance.
There’s also a much bigger supply of .223 Remington factory ammo suitable for big game hunting (like the Barnes VOR-TX, the Hornady GMX, and the Nosler E-Tip and Partition) than any of the other cartridges. Grosvenor Wotkyns (of .22 Hornet fame) took things a step further by necking down the .250/3000 Savage to .22 caliber.
On deer the shot was through the eye or behind the ear for a drop dead kill. As was the case with the .22-250, Remington knew a winner when they saw it and standardized the new cartridge (which is very similar, but not identical to the 5.56x45mm) with SAAMI as the .223 Remington in the early 1960s.
