You are watching: Can you shoot 222 in a 223


Here"s mine dilemma, ns bought an Encore through a .223 (so ns thought) Bergara barrel, i haven"t had a possibility to shooting it.I bought one more barrel and also pulled the .223 turn off to excellent the brand-new barrel

, i was wiping under the .223 when I experienced the factory printing top top the underside, it said .222, ns took a .223 dummy round i have and slipped it in, that went in prefer it should.I haven"t been able to call the guy I bought the barrel native to check out if it had been reamed, he marketed it come me together a .223, what say you all??I googleized the question and also from what i gather the shoulder ~ above the .222 is shorter, so the .223 shouldn"t chamber.

223 could fit in a 222 Mag.Timhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.222_Remington_Magnum#/media/File:222_family.jpghttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.222_Remington_Magnumhttp://stevespages.com/jpg/cd223remington.jpghttp://stevespages.com/jpg/cd222remingtonmagnum.jpg
The barrel is significant .222 Rem, there isn"t a mag afterwards.After looking at the links you would certainly think that the .223 would press in farther due to the fact that of the much shorter body than the .222 mag, as soon as I placed the ring in this barrel the stops specifically flush v the confront of the barrel.

There is no means a .223 situation will fit in a .222 chamber. The .222 has actually a much longer neck and the shoulder is way back indigenous the instance mouth contrasted to the quick necked .223. The .222 is the original and also the .223, .222 mag, .204 Ruger, etc. Every evolved form the .222. That is still a an excellent varmint and pest caliber.

+1 through ourway. A 223 won"t room in a 222, yet it will in a 222 mag. The Lyman manual has a specific warning versus shooting 223s in a 222 mag chamber. IMHO a chamber cast is the way to go, ~ above the off chance that is a 222 mag. Wrongly marked.
Thank you all, I"m holding turn off firing it until I can either talk to the man who offered it or I carry out a room cast.......

It won"t ache to try a .223 case in the chamber if you don"t close the action. I have actually seen several competitor barrels in .221 Fireball the were rechambered to .223 and also have heard the .222 barrels gift rechambered too. Part were marked and some were not. If a .223 instance fits do the washing up in the chamber, climate it is OK unless of food it is chambered for .222 mag.
Mine does also. I haven"t verified this, but I suspect the Begara barrels space all chambered as .222 and then reamed to .223 when shipped to America. The .222 is more than likely a more common cartridge in Spain or other areas they market them at.
Not certain it would certainly hurt anything to shoot one if that fits. You have the right to drop a .223 in a 7mm tcu and also fire it to fireform the brass come 7tcu. Folks have actually been doing that for years.
I think Rosewood is most likely right. In many countries army cartridges are banned for civilian use, therefore a .222 would be a an excellent alternative to the 5.56. The .222 is as an excellent as it ever was and also with a 40 serial V Max or Ballistic tip it will certainly really shine.
It won"t hurt to shot a .223 instance in the chamber if you don"t near the action. I have actually seen several contender barrels in .221 Fireball the were rechambered come .223 and also have heard the .222 barrels gift rechambered too. Part were marked and some were not. If a .223 case fits do the washing up in the chamber, then it is OK uneven of course it is chambered because that .222 mag.
On mine original write-up I wrote that that chambered a .223, fitting like it must have.Anyways, i spoke to the initial owner and also he said he bought it packaged together a .223 and also shot about two crate of ammo thru it prior to selling it come me, never ever noticing the marking on the bottom of the barrel, so it"s a .223, thanks everyone...

No.... Get it checked. What type of human being puts 2 boxes of ammo v a gun without noticing the chamber marking on the barrel???? never put her trust in anyone"s word when it comes to these things. It"s more than likely alright. But this is a teachable moment. These are the varieties of presumptions that get civilization into trouble. Do you want stitches? carry out you want shrapnel? ?? How about loss the eyesight???? possibly worse..... Get it checked. Jammer

Perhaps girlfriend missed the part where the barrel marking on the peak was .223, however on the bottom where it would be covered by the forend (and whereby many, if not most, world would have missed it also when swapping barrels) that is significant .222I agree, obtain it checked, but this situation isn"t something the warrants spreading aspersions top top anyone.
