I've owned a few 22 BR 1-14 twist barrels set up for the light 22 caliber bullets. I was pleased with both accuracy and speed. I'm wondering if anyone here has first hand experience with a 22BR in 1-7 or 1-8 twist with the 75 to 80 grain bullet range?

Since the 6BR does so well with the heavier bullets, I am thinking about trying a 22BR set up for the 77 SMK or equivalent custom bullet.

When I first heard about the 77 grain Sierra bullet being shot in the .223 Remington, I thought that would never work. Man, was I wrong. I've had a custom 700 and a RRA AR-15 that were amazingly accurate with that bullet.

Would appreciate any advice or experience that anyone can share.

Thanks, critter_bill

Not a 22BR, but I've shot a 22 Dasher with 80gr Hornady Amaxs. Very, very accurate and it was going 3350 fps with a FULL case of H4350.

Ballistics are about the same at 600 yards as 105 VLDs shot by a 6BR. However, the trajectory is much flatter. For a varmint round, I'd take the 22 Dasher over the 6BR for that reason... if barrel life was not an issue.

Either Gary Noble or Billy Copelin held the club record in Eatonville,Washington with a 22BR using the heavy bullets.Maybe one of the shooters from the pacific northwest will read this and give you some break down on the rifle.

I trashed a 14 twist 22 Dasher barrel in 1800 rounds shooting prairie dogs. Last time for that experiment.

I have a 1/9 22BR. It shoots the 69gr SMKs extremely well and the 77SMK and 75AMax not much worse. With the 75s it is one of the guns that goes out to South Dakota for prairie dogs.

Thanks, guys, for the responses. Although I still want another 1-14" Krieger barrel, I'm leaning toward a 1-8" twist as well.

I sold my Hall S with (3) 22BR barrels last year because I wanted to build on BATs. I've missed that rifle ever since I sold it and hope to duplicate it on a BAT B action. It will be a few months before I get the barrels but I will report my results when available.

Thanks again. critter_bill

Hi, I have a 22BR with a 30" hart 1:8 twist shooting 80g VLD's 31.5g VV150 CCI450 primers 10th in to lands for 3200 fps.
Awsom, I can beat or hold my own from 300 to 600 mts against most of the heavy hitters in my club, but 700 + if the wind comes up all over, I'm just building a 6.5 for long stuff.

I shoot an 8 twist 22BR for varmints. About 28 gns of varget under a 75 AMAX. Not a lot of pressure and is a hammer on critters out to 500-600 yards. Further than that I use a 243.
