I have not been able to reload for a while and have been using factory ammo from another company , "Hy". .220 Swift is an expensive cartridge due to limited popularity (Those guys don't know what they are missing). Hy changed their offerings and I started looking for something else. I handload the 40 gr Nosler bal. tip and group in the .300s so when I found the fedrel load for under $20 per box I decided to try a few. My first groups were under .475 inches and two Chronographs read in the high 4390's FPS. No pressure problems no primer flattening, no sticky cases and it was 90 degrees F out. I thought something was wrong. I had over 4400 FPS. No, that's not a mistake. My handloads are only 4177. I can't even handload that fast velocity with that kind of accuracy (repeatability). My friends say, "you are going to burn out your barrel." I say, "I hope so". A new Shilen barrel is $400 installed. Who cares. I have put over 2000 rounds through this gun since 1992 and it is as good as ever and maybe better. Winchester 70 HBV from 1992 has a Schneider barrel from the factory. Been on 5 prairie dog hunts shooting hot & fast 200 rounds in a trip. I bought this as a "hot rod". I'll put this up against any 22.250. SPEED KILLS. This is virtually flat out to 500 yards with a 275 zero. This price was so good I bought 15 more boxes. And a rebate to boot. So, you can tell I am not too enthusiastic about this ammo! (LOL).
I have photos if the folk's at Vizard's can put them in. You can see this review at the Federal website with photos.
