222 ammo is also known as .222 Remington, and it was introduced in 1950 as a varmint round. It has since become popular for target shooting and small game hunting due to its accuracy and low recoil.

How to reload 222 Ammo?

Reloading ammunition can be a complex process that requires careful attention to detail and adherence to safety guidelines. Reloading .222 ammunition follows similar steps to reloading other rifle cartridges. Here’s a general overview of the process:

1. Gather reloading equipment and components: You’ll need a reloading press, dies specifically designed for .222 Remington, brass cases, primers, powder, bullets, a powder scale, a powder funnel, a case trimmer, and a bullet seating tool.

2. Inspect the brass cases: Check the cases for any signs of damage or defects. Discard any cases that are cracked, split, or have other issues that could compromise safety.

3. Clean the brass cases: Use a case cleaner or tumbler to clean the cases, removing dirt, grime, and residue from previous firings.

4. Resize the brass cases: Install the resizing die in the reloading press and follow the instructions provided with your specific die set. Lubricate the cases with a suitable case lube before running them through the resizing die to ensure smooth resizing.

5. Trim and chamfer the cases (if necessary): Measure the length of the resized cases using a caliper. If any cases are longer than the specified trim-to length (usually indicated in reloading manuals), use a case trimmer to trim them to the correct length. After trimming, use a chamfer tool to remove any burrs or sharp edges from the case mouth.

6. Prime the cases: Install the priming tool in your reloading press and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to prime the cases with the appropriate primers. Ensure that each primer is seated properly and fully seated.

7. Charge the cases with powder: Use a powder scale to measure the appropriate powder charge according to the reloading manual’s recommendations for your chosen bullet and load. Use a powder funnel to carefully pour the measured powder into each case.

8. Seat the bullet: Set up the bullet seating die in the reloading press and adjust it to the desired seating depth. Follow the instructions provided with your die set to seat the bullet to the desired depth. Ensure that the bullet is seated straight and securely in the case.

9. Inspect and check the completed rounds: Once you have completed all the reloading steps, visually inspect each round for any abnormalities, such as incorrect seating depth, high or low powder charges, or other issues. Use a caliper to measure overall cartridge length to ensure it falls within the specified range.
