coyota1, the 222 Mag might as well be dead, but I do believe that Cooper and Wichita and at least one other rifle maker will make a 222 Rem Mag for you if you wanted one. In that regard, the cartridge isn't any more dead than the 220 Swift was in the early 70's, when Ruger started putting it in the 77V. Still, with the 223 all over the place, there's no need for the 222 Mag any more, so I expect that it will soon be officially no longer chambered. The 223 has 95.5% of the case capacity of the 222 Mag, so it's virtually identical.
