    Tikka T3 Varmint - like the one in my cabinet (or T3X).

    Great rifle. Great calibre.

    Sako 75. 222 isn't a barrel burner and there's lots out there in good condition second hand. Find a nice one that you like and you'll have it for life. 222 is a lovely cartridge to shoot

    wouldn't it have been easier to ask if anyone knew of an unreliable one ?

    .222

    Lovely cartridge..lots of decent rifles...CZ 527... older BSA CF...I have a Sako 75 with varmint barrel....shot very well at 300 yds Bisley..

    Pays your money and makes your choice. I am not aware of a bad rifle choice with the .222. Most have a 1 in 14 twist, limiting you to 50/55gn bullet...may be some more recent models with a 1 in 12 twist?

    Cz527 or Rem700, have both and they're reliable and extremely accurate.

    Not enough information in the original post to properly advise.
    Your intended use of the rifle and budget would be helpful.
    Also, your title says 222 RM. On first reading I wondered if you meant the pretty much obsolete 222 Remington Magnum rather than the lovely 222 Remington.
