Re: Heavy bullets in 22-250

Would the Extra velocity of the 22-250AI be more likely to stabilize them

Re: Heavy bullets in 22-250

It would help to stabilize them, but what I've been told by Kirby Allen is that you have to worry about the bullet coming apart and throat life is short for the A.I. version. He said I would be better off running the bullet at a velocity in the 2800-2900fps range in a standard 22-250 case. As I don't have a barrel yet, I can't give any specifics. He also suggested staying with a 1:8 twist.

I shoot the 90 Berger in my 22-243 at a mildish 3100, 1-7 26 " outstanding accuracy.

I tried them in my 1-8 Tikka T3 22-204 at 2850ish but they wouldn't stabilise.

It shoots the 75 & 80 amax mint, pretty good for 28-30 grains of powder

Re: Heavy bullets in 22-250

the cost of switching to the AI was not worth it to me with dies and so forth. the speed in my oppinion is not that much more to really convince me also to go with the AI version. I can push them at over 3100 fps. if i wanted to with the regular 250 but it is extremely hot load for me so i backed them off. I am happy with the performance I am getting. You will be happy with the performance of that round I am sure of that.

I'm a hodgdon fan. Have not tried 4350 though. Had great results with the 4895 that I have a lot of and stuck with that. Might be fun to give 4350 a try though to see how it works.
