Remington

This specialized varmint cartridge was introduced by Remington in 1971 in their M700 rifle.

The case is based on the .223 Remington necked down to .17 caliber with the shoulder set back to lengthen the neck.

With a muzzle velocity of 4,000 fps the factory 25 grain bullet kills well within practical varmint hunting ranges.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .17 Remington is 52,000 C.U.P. Accurate 2700 is an excellent choice for this cartridge, giving good loading density and high velocity.

.22 CCM

The .22 Cooper Center-fire Magnum is the .22 Extra Long Centerfire reborn. The .22 Extra Long Center-fire was designed for the Model 1882 Maynard single shot hunting and gallery rifles. It was replaced by the .22 WCF.

The .22 CCM can be thought of as a reloadable .22 WMR. Its performance actually places it midway between the .22 WMR and the .22 Hornet.

The maximum loads shown below are approved by Cooper Arms.

22 HORNET

The .22 Hornet, based on the black powder .22 Winchester, was developed during the late 1920s and early thirties. The .22 Winchester was modernized in Europe several years before the Hornet was developed in the United States by a group of experimenters at Springfield Armory. Col. Townsend Whelen and Captain G. L. Wotkyns were two of the more prominent experimenters associated with the .22 Hornet.

Winchester produced the first commercial ammunition about 1930 and within a few years it had been standardized by all American manufacturers. In 1932 Winchester announced that the Model 54 bolt action rifle would be made in .22 Hornet. Today, rifles chambered for the .22 Hornet are available from several manufacturers.

There are two bullet diameters available, .223" and .224". Early .22 Hornets were made from .22 LR barrels, hence the smaller bullet diameter. If your .22 Hornet has a custom barrel, ensure that you have the proper bullet diameter for best results.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .22 Hornet is 43,000 C.U.P. Accurate 1680 propellant is an excellent choice for this cartridge.

218 BEE

Introduced by Winchester in 1938 in the Model 65 lever action rifle, the .218 Bee is based on the .32-20 Winchester case necked to .22 caliber.

Although more powerful than the .22 Hornet, the .218 Bee suffered from limitations of the Model 65. The blunt-nosed bullets that were required because of the tubular magazine reduced the effective range and individual rifles exhibited erratic accuracy.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .218 Bee is 40,000 C.U.P.

221 FIREBALL

The .221 Fireball was developed by Remington in 1963 for the XP-100 single-shot, bolt action pistol. The .221 Fireball is a shortened version of the .222 Remington cartridge loaded to higher pressures in order to provide adequate power from the XP-100's 10-inch barrel when hunting small game.

Remington has never chambered a rifle in the .221 Fireball; however, Kimber manufactured their Model 84 bolt action for this cartridge. When used in a rifle-length barrel, the .221 Fireball is the equal of the .222 Remington. Accurate 1680 is the best choice for high velocity loads in the .221 Fireball.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .221 Fireball is 52,000 C.U.P.

Hunting Mastery Selected Tips

Hunting Mastery Selected Tips

Deer hunting is an interesting thing that reminds you of those golden old ages of 19th centuries, where a handsome hunk well equipped with all hunting material rides on horse searching for his target animal either for the purpose of displaying his masculine powers or for enticing and wooing his lady love.
