Re: .22-250 Rem Savage Model 12 Long Range Precision Varminter
I have two Savage 22-250's, and had a third one for awhile. Barrels are all 12 twist. Seems to like the Sierra #1365 bullet over IMR3031. Start with about 33.5 grains of powder and work your way up to about 36.0 grains. Seat the bullets about .002" off the lands, and use a Federal primer. The worst that any of these rifle shoot is about .350" five shot groups. One rifle (the one that's gone) would shoot in the .180" to .210" area often. The Mod. 12 single shot rifle started out shoot just under .40" groups, and now is shooting this same load (35.5 grains) at .300", and often dips into the mid twos. The other rifle shoots in the very low threes all the time as well, but will get down into the mid twos on occasion.
