savage 222

Does anyone load for a savage model 340 in a 222. What grain bullets go you use and what is the best powder to use. Thank you.

H335

My 340 likes H335 with 50gr 52 and 53 gr bullets. It gives me sub one inch groups with match kings, also its not a hot load, about the middle of the load chart as far as grains of powder. Also I have some old 70 gr speer semi points with imr 4895 don't laugh its got 6 white tail for 6 shots with this load. 4 of the 6 were shot with by sub teen girls. I shot the other 2
