.218 Bee & .22 Hornet & .256 Winchester Magnum (CLASS of CARTRIDGES) Discussion.

913 35
So, I am wanting to get a refresher and "Deeper" education reference a class of small centerfire cartridges. Much smaller the 5.56X45 size. I am actually looking for some good articles comparing that size cartridges. (I suck at finding things on internet)

Kind of a weird grouping in my mind. Why a 256W when the others are 22cal? 25-06 may be one to look at if you want bigger cal but still extremely accurate and fast…maybe a 220swift…fasted factory cartridge.

Want short barrel life 264 Win Mag and the 220 Swift come to mind for factory fodder.
But 4400fps….sometimes ya just gotta. Lol.

Granted, mine is one I custom built and barreled but it has well over 5k rounds and still is a tack driver as far as I care to shoot. Just my opinion, don’t heat the barrel up with any sustained fire and the only bullets that go to close to max are my yote rounds. I keep everything else at a measly 3900 to 4kfps. Definitely fun to shoot pdogs with…they just kind of disappear, just bring another rifle for the rest/most of the day.
My biggest issue is case life. Seems like more than 2-3 they start getting thin enough at the case head I don’t trust them…and I don’t full length resize for that gun to try and help.
