If you’re looking for a light but extremely fast bullet, .220 Swift ammo might be a good fit. At its introduction, the cartridge was the fastest centerfire cartridge in existence. The 220 Swift was also the first cartridge to break 4,000 feet per second in terms of muzzle velocity.
The round was introduced for a variety of different purposes. First off it was designed to be a predator, or varmint hunting round. A large round was not necessary for these small game animals, and the heavy amount of shooting often involved when hunting varmint like prairie dogs. The 220 Swift predated the popular 223 Remington by 30 years and shared similar performance characteristics, with modern loads reaching 4,200 feet per second in muzzle velocity.
