Sellier & Bellot - Soft Point - 50 Grain 222 Remington Ammo - 100 Rounds
Remington’s Triple Deuce was introduced in 1950 as the first commercially available centerfire .22 caliber cartridge in the US. While other calibers exist with higher velocities and heavier hitting bullets for further down range, they also deliver heavier recoil and muzzle blast along with increased barrel erosion. While certainly not the king of small bore centerfires, it is an easy shooting round that many appreciate for its ability to neutralize typical woodland vermin on and around farms. .222 ammo, however, remains very popular for close to medium range varmint hunting and competitive target shooting.
This 222 ammunition is loaded with Sellier & Bellot’s 50 grain soft point bullet. It has a muzzle velocity of 3215 feet per second with 1148 foot pounds of energy. This is a purpose designed round for small game hunting as well as getting the rifle sighted in for ready service.
Distributed within the CBC Group umbrella, Sellier & Bellot is among the oldest of ammunition makers in the world. Founded in the 1820s within the borders of Bohemia, S&B has witnessed and pioneered virtually every metallic cartridge innovation over the last two centuries. U.S. sportsmen have found their boxer primed cases to be well suited for reloading and custom bullet making.
