    You might reconsider selling your .221 - I've got mine shooting in the 3's using RL7 & 40 grain Blitzking. The Model 700 .221 is the most enjoyable "walking around" varminter I have ever owned.

    Good move - try 40 grain Blitzkings loaded .010 off the lands over 19.2 grains of RL7 & federal match primers. Going from standard Reddings to Wilson neck dies brought groups down about a 10th.
