Ammo for .222 Remigton

Post by dushikelwa » Mon Aug 05, 2013 6:23 pm

Hi, I have a .222 remington pump action rifle. Was wanting to know if there any ammo available. Tried a few sources but could not find any. Any help will be appreciated.

.222 Remington is readily available in the USA.
Unlike a lot of rifle calibers that people inquire about on this forum, .222 Rem rifles are still sold here and will probably continue to be for a while.
As for it's availability in India, Someone else will have to answer that question.
