22-250 rem

I'm new here,but not to the world. I have been to many sites,forums,and other discussion groups. looking for,what I now think,a hens tooth. I purchased a 22-250,I have an 223,and a 243, just trying to fill the gap in my old age. I got there before the baby boomers. Back to my point. Since manufactures think that lengthen the freebore , you can shoot longer and heavier bullets,which anybody knows is BS. In this forum is there someone who can give me a prospective of what I'm looking as to jump,leade to contact of rifling? My o-give is 2.104 55gr nosler . Coal. 2.438. Saami. says 2.350 Max. In these forums, I have seen , mine is 2.511. I have seen no jump or .45 to what ever. this a new rifle, 1x14,.nothing fired thru barrel. At this time I'm looking for someone who has overcome this problem. as it stands my jump is about .090 .seating becomes a serious problem in more ways than one. the gun is being bedded and I'm at the point, the rifle was cleaned before any measurements were taken ,my D.I. said ok.,of sending it back to the unemployed rocket scientist,or marketing expert that came up with this idea. It all leads to barrel erosion. I'm on an fixed income so don't tell me to send it here, they will fix it for $400. I paid $500.00 for the gun, yes they had in stock 3.5 years. I thank you for any serious input . clark6898.

Re: 22-250 rem

not sure what your saying, i think it's that your bullet jump is longer than you think it should be. I can only speak for my 22-250, i have no idea what my bullet jump is it's that long, it friggin drives tacks though, so i just don't worry about it. find a load your riffle likes and leave it alone, and don't waste time trying to make it shoot a bullet it won't shoot.

Re: 22-250 rem

Many of the 22-250's prefer flat based projectiles. I went through a lot of boat tail development before I found that tid bit out with my 22-250 remy 700. Then it started shooting great. Most bullets did require jump to reach its potential for accuracy. And with Bergers, I have a 6.5-06AI that likes an excessive jump(.150) but drives tacks.

Re: 22-250 rem

With a 14 twist the 55grn nosler should be the heaviest you shoot, 40 and 50grn noslers and vmaxs will likely shoot the best. In my 22-250 I can't touch the lands and have enough bullet left in the case to secure it so I set 55 nosler vmg tipped flat base bullets at 2.355" or over a 1/4" of jump, with these type of varmint bullets, when I see .2-.4" 5 shot groups I'm not even close to being concerned how far its jumping.

+1 thats me too, ironically the most accurate bullet I've shot out of it shouldn't stabilize at all. 53gr Vmax with a 1 in 14 twist barrel. yea just go with it if it's gonna give it to you.

To Joe King, Aldon and backwoods83

I thank you very much for your replies. You hit the tack right on the head. I was looking for a jump distance, and seating COAL. that someone else was using with success, so as to be sure what I was thinking was correct. You'll answered any question that I have, except, what is the smallest bullet you can load without blow by before the bullet seals the barrel? I had already discounted B.T. bullets due to the freebore. again I thank you'll.

Re: 22-250 rem

The 40grn nosler bts and 40grn hornady vmaxs work great, and mine is a 12 twist, it still shoots 1/4" groups with them just under 4300fps.
