22 VARMINTER

This is the predecessor to the 22-250 Remington. There was also an article in the Feb 1991 ECRA Journal that mentions the 22-250 Varminter in Australia as well. According to the notes it was "...Formed from the .250-300 Savage cartridge case by reducing the neck to hold .224" bullets. One of the oldest of the .22 high velocity cartridges and very efficient with a wide variety of bullets and powders. Bullets form 45gr. to 63gr. may be used to give velocities between 3,300 and 3,900 ft./sec."
