Re: need help with 22-250 load
Most factory 22-250 barrels have a 14" twist which makes them shoot best with bullets between 50gr-55gr. A 60gr V-Max or similar style bullet normally requires a 12" twist for stability. If your rifle has a 12" twist (or faster) then I'd give the 60gr bullet a try.
For many years I shot 52gr match bullets exclusively. They kill varmints decisively but not dramatically, if you know what I mean. IMR 4064 and H380 shot best in my 40x. Eventually the throat receeded and I switched to 55gr B-Tip bullets. These bullets shot tight groups with Varget and were quite reliable out to 400yds or so.
Farther than that, I prefer to shoot a 6mmAI and 70gr or 80gr B-Tip bullets.
Personally, I have seen slightly smaller groups with Nosler B-Tips rather than Hornady V-Max bullets but the V-Max may be a bit more explosive. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] The Hornady is an excellent bullet that is preferred by many other shooters.
