218 Bee Ammo About The .218 Bee Ammo is a .22 caliber Ammo that is a centerfire rifle cartridge created mainly for varmint hunting purposes. It was designed and made available in the markets in 1937 in the United States. The .218 Bee Ammo is named for the bore diameter of the barrel the cartridge is chambered in rather than the bullet's nomenclature reflecting the bullet's name in some way. The parent casing used to design the .218 Bee Ammo was the .25-20 Winchester Ammo. It was done by necking the .25-20 Winchester Ammo down to accept the .224 diameter. During the early introduction, the .218 Bee Ammo showed promise, but because of the rifles' poor performance, the cartridge accuracy greatly suffered. The overall case length of the .218 Bee Ammo is 34.2mm, and the bullet diameter of this cartridge is 5.7mm. The 50-grain bullet variant of the .218 Bee Ammo can travel at a velocity of 2,654 feet per second while creating an energy level of 782 ft.lbf. Manufacturer The .218 Bee Ammo was inspired by the design of the .25.20 Winchester Ammo, and the Winchester Repeating Arms Company created it in 1937 in the United States. Uses The .218 Bee Ammo is the perfect choice when it comes to varmint hunting and can easily take down ground squirrels, critters, and prairie dogs accurately.
