I have a swift, 2 22-250 and a wssm I wanna try those in as well. I love shooting distance with the little guns. Keeps things real. Don't get me wrong my 230 berger ballistic cruise missles are fun too but I can do it so much cheaper with a .22 cal. Keep up the good work 500.
Oh no!! It took me about 2 weeks of every night after work trying different powder charges different powders different oal's. Then when i thought i couldnt do any better with this rifle at a 1/2" group. Bang!! We hit the motherload!!! I have to aim a fuz out of my previous hole to even see anything showing there is anything but that one bullet hole.
I almost have so much work into this load it would be almost hard to share it.
I will tell you this its over max recommended load. But its what worked perfect in my rifle without any pressure signs.
