Re: 22-250 loads

Weather...Yes, something to consider. Guess it's time to play with different loads and go from there.

Thanks for all the help everyone

    lablover,
    CObrad is pretty close on them loads using the H380 with a 52gr.

    I do not use Nosler, Sierra or Hornady manuals, don't like them, have not bought one of these since the early nineties. I only use Hodgon's, Barnes and Speer books now, they seem to be more accurite for me.

    I myself like H-4895 for the 55gr V-Max in my 700 w/Shilen barrel. For a 52gr Speer my best groups have always been with RL-15 powder.
    I really don't care for the H-380.....but a good temp. sentive powder is the RL-15, I also use it in my '06 with "super" good results.

    Try Varget if you can. It's supposed to be more tolerant of temp changes. I shoot my 22-250 VS for predators in Winter and skinnys in Summer with the same load which is a 55gr Nosler BT over 36.5grs of Varget and a WLR primer. Gives about 3600fps.

    The Varget load for a 55gr Vmax is 30.8 gains for a minimum load up to a max of 34.6 grains

    The MAX load for a 55gr Vmax over H380 is 40.6 grains.
    Not 41.2 as Wayne had typed.
    I think he saw the max load for H 414 which is right below it. Your gun may not even notice. Proceed with caution.

    Keep us updated on what shoots well for you.

    Definitely listen to skinny as well and try the varget as well as H4895 since both are pretty temp insensitive. H380 still worked best for me.

    Sincere apologies, Skinny Shooter is correct. I gave the max load for 414.
