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

Re: 22-250 loads

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.

Re: 22-250 loads

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.

Re: 22-250 loads

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.

Re: 22-250 loads

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