Following. Looking at a 700 ADL in 222. Right now I have 2# of IMR-4891 and most of 1# of RL-7.

500 Hornady SXSP 50 grain and some 40 grain Sierras, both BK and HP. Looking for something with max explosion. Make the feathers fly so to speak.

If you want a bullet to really make the fur fly on prairie dogs but yet is fur friendly on coyotes, try the Barnes 36 gr Varmint Grenades. I have shot a 222 for many years and this bullet using H322 is really a great performer.
I shot, and still have a bunch of rounds loaded with the Nosler 40 gr BT (orange tip) and while I really liked the accuracy I was getting splashes on coyotes so I don't use them for that any more. I use H322 with that bullet as well.

H335 or AA2230 are good.

I ended up going with IMR4198, CCI 400 and 40 gr vmaxes. Have the test loads loaded up, just waiting for it to not be 100 degrees
