Just picked up a nice 22-250 winchester for my son. I have reloaded for a few over the years but nothing serious. I was just wondering what the preferred powders are for 50-60 grain bullets out of a 24" barrel. Thanks!
I've tried everything out there, and honestly I think they are all probably a good choice. There is however a new powder out there called Reloader 10X. I staretd using that in my 22-250 and it's AMAZING. I had a CZ I was going to get rebarreled because I couldn't get it to shoot as tight as I wanted. Myself and a friend started using 10x and WOW. What a powder.
H380 has no peer in the 22-250. 37 to 42 grains with 50 grain Hornady SPSX's. This bullet does things the plastic tip bullets only dream of. I would start right out at 39 grains and enjoy. In 5 different Rugers you have to move it around to even see if the other rounds are hitting the paper. Yes it groups that tight even after 6000 rounds and I can't get anywhere near the rifling anymore. I still just can't take a 1 holer and justify changing the barrel.
