My wife was handed down an old savage 222 that was her grandfathers. When I was handed down a bunch of reloading stuff from her father of course there was a die set for 222 and two boxes of 50 gr .224 diameter bullets. So logically I start reloading for the rifle. Problem is, I cannot get the rifle to shoot. My father in law did some work to the stock which could be the reason why it will not shoot as he is not a gunsmith. I have tried multiple different charge weights with the 50 gr hand me downs and best I can get is about a 2 inch 4 shot group. The reason I want the rifle to shoot is the fact that is a great rifle for youngsters to shoot. I am 99% sure that this old rifle has 1:14 twist. I have attempted Varget powder but tried a lot of different variations with IMR 4198. Should I try lighter bullets? Heavier bullets? I have gotten frustrated with the rifle even though it is my wife's and not mine. I just want the rifle to be able to shoot 1 inch groups so my kids and nephews can practice with it. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
