I wish you luck,,,I know Norma is expensive but it shoots very well,trued up Winchester brass might be your best bet,,It works as good for me as Norma at less then half the price,of course you will need to sort it by shooting,,some will have to be trashed but its still cheaper with good results I have found.

I would like to find some decent 222 brass as well, but from what searching I did there is not much out there, except for Norma, Remington & Winchester.

I just bought 200 Norma cases, gulp, cough. But after shooting them, they are consistent and shoot a long time.

If you buy Norma and have a tight chamber, be careful turning the necks. In a little haste you can tear the them right apart.

Good luck in your search!

I think the Lapua 222 brass was made by RWS.

Maybe there is still some RWS out there.

I have not tried it but I think you can make 222 out of 223?

Maybe some one here can answer this.
