The .222 Rem is a great varmint-buster! It's fun to handload, and 99% of my ammunition is handloaded but, for fire-formed brass, I've had great results with Remington's factory 50-gr and W-W's 45-grain ammunition. I've owned four .222 rifles, and none of them were disappointments. The fourth is my light varminter, a Rem Model 600, and you can see it on my profile. Every .222 I've owned (a Sako, two Rem 700s, and a Rem 600) have been a delight, and it's a fine coyote cartridge.
Oh yeah the .222 is a sweet one. Used to dominate matches. Very accurate caliber. Any decent ammo you find that isn't FMJ will drop them.
