I'll second that request for a source for those 52 gr. JLK's.

Re: need help with 22-250 load

I believe that one of the advantages that Savage has over Remington and most all other factory barrels is their 1-12" twist which helps stabilize the heavier bullet. Berger offers a 60 gr, a 62 gr and a 64 gr in both 'match' and what they call their 'maximum expansion factor'. They all seem to group great in the 12 twist 22-250. They also have a 70 gr VLD although I've never attempted to load them.

Thus far the most accurate load I have been able to work up is a 62 Gr Berger Flat Based Moly Match bullet over 33.0 gr of Varget, Avg. Vel. 3,338 fps. My rifle will shoot this load into a five shot group at under 0.5 moa.

If you do a search here on JLK bullets i think there's another shop or two that carries them, otherwise you'll just have to order direct from Jimmy Knox via the phone # at the end of my last post.

I just checked the Berger website-- those 60,62, and 64 look good but I don't think they're considered Low Drag. Highest BC was .281 for the 64 gr. I really think that if you can get those JLK's to work they'll get you out there better than anything else around.
