Can someone tell me if the .221 Fireball and .222 Remington cartridges have the exact same case head dimensions? I am asking because I am thinking about rebarreling an old XP-100 to fire .222 Rem. and I do not want to have to alter the bolt in any way.
Thanks very much for any replies!

Thanks very much! I am not a handloader and do not have those great manuals to reference.
