I’m looking to go fully lead free in the CF rifles whilst the my 308 and 30/06 are simple to do as there’s load of factory options.  The 222 looks harder I’m currently reloading for it but like to have a factory option readily available especially in a fox rifle.  
 

So does anyone do a factory 222 round in copper, I can’t obviously see one and Barnes my preferred option don’t.   Ideally 50 grains but can be heavier, I’ve a 1:8 twist fitted so no issues on stability.  Or I’ll probably have to look to re cut the chamber to 223.

I shoot a few muntie as well with it but REACH UK have said ban the use of all lead ammunition, they don’t mention limiting this to game, their statement of all offers no exemption!

I know you are looking for cartridges for the .222 but also notice you reload. Nosler do a copper bullet upto 50 grains in .22 caliber, not sure about the deer though as it is a varmint type. Hope this helps.

Thanks I can get and will use Barnes copper 224 50grain bullets when reloading but when times tight it’s easier to just grab 100 factory and go, instead of reloading them.
