Re: 22-250 shooters
+1 for North of 53's comments.
I got nearly 5000 rounds through my old 220 Swift before it quit giving "Minute of Prarie Dog" at 300 yds. Majority of those rounds were only flying at around 3500 to 3600 FPS though. I cleaned it every 20 to 50 rounds, and in it's prime would shoot below 1/2 MOA real regular. Now, at re-barrel time; it was shooting MOA +. That is with the rifling totally gone for the 1st inch to inch & 1/2. Heat cracking extends past that point for another 8 inches. The 22-250 should do even better assuming that barrel/steel quaility is the same.
Shoot, Shoot, and Shoot some more!!
