I have a savage: Savage Arms
in a 22-250 with a rate of twist 12.
shot a Barnes Varminator:
I seated the bullet to a depth of 2.400'"on top of VARGET at 37.5 grains of powder for a velocity 3936 (according to load data used on hodgon's website.
The distance was hundred yards, with little to no wind. As you can see the grouping is pretty good...wish I could cover it with a dime instead of a nickle.
What has me puzzled is I shot a 36 bullet and it was NOT pulling hard right like the 40 gr did. Forgot to mention I shoot left handed, not right. I really don't want to adjust my scope to bring that 40 grain bullet back a full inch and a quarter to center. Since that recipe is at a starting load (37.5 grains) if I sped it up a little more, going in half grain increments, would that round come back to center?
