228 Ackley Magnum
The 228 Ackley Magnum dates back to about 1938 and, although it has been around a number of years, it developed only a limited popularity. Like the 22 Newton, it was designed as a combination varmint and big game cartridge Ammunition is made by necking down and shortening 30-06 Springfield or 308 Winchester brass. There are several versions of this cartridge, but the Ackley design is the most popular.
Rifles in 228 caliber using heavy jacketed bullets designed for big game have been used very successfully all over the world. Bullets of this type were made in weights from 70 to over 100 grains by Fred Barnes, but are now difficult to obtain. Rifles in this class have proven rather conclusively that the difficulty encountered with the 220 Swift and other high velocity 22's has been mostly a matter of improper bullet design. Factory 22 caliber centerfire loads are all made for varmint shooting and don't hold together or penetrate deeply enough on big game. Sometimes they do and the result is spectacular, but mostly they blow up on contact and inflict a horrible, but not immediately fatal wound. As a result, hunting deer and antelope with any 22 caliber centerfire rifle is illegal in most states. I have witnessed some instant one shot kills on deer and antelope with high velocity 22 rifles using proper bullets for the job. Bear this matter of bullet construction in mind next time you get into an argument over the effectiveness of small caliber rifles on big game.
