    22 Terminator 1-7 Twist

    Just got the new 22 Terminator going with a 1-7 twist TF UM barrel.



    It has a PSE stock I got a while ago.



    I have been wanting to build a 7 twist for a wee while now to shoot the 90 Bergers with their .551 BC



    I was quite surprised with the velocity shown in initial testing & I think there is more in it with the 90 Bergers.

    It is only 150-175 fps behind my normal load in the 22-243 & a heap less powder.

    I can push the 90s beyond 3200 fps in the 22-243, but they have a nasty habit of self destructing mid-flight, the more heat the worse it gets

    So 3100fps is a happy medium with the 90s in a 7 twist

    I was thinking about this today... is the 204 ruger case a necked down .223?
    so you have basicly made the 204 back into .223?
    I really am not sure, but whatever you have done sounds good. you know I shoot the .223 with the 80gr amax, at about 2800.... next barrel, if I had them doing 3000 that would be great!

    and isn't the .222 mag and the .223 pretty much the same thing?

    The 222 mag is the parent case to the 204 but the shoulder is moved foward and angled to 30 degrees.

    Na. 223 necked down is 20 practical, bit less case capacity
