22 cal 60 Gr Bullet with 1 in 14" Twist

Anybody had any luck with this exact matter? Anybody gone heavier. I am currently shooting a 55 gr Blitz out of my 22-250 but have a long throat and wanted to take advantage of it. Let me know good or bad.

If they would stabalize i would be shooting them right now, was going to give the 60 grain berger a try but tested it on a stability calculator and it said they wouldnt stabalize. Heck, the 36 grain varmint grenade is .7" long and out of a 220 swift at 4300 fps in a 1:14 twist at 2500' and 59 degrees it is just below "stable". I have 200 of them that i was going to give a try and still will to see how they do.

Yeah I wonder, my 55 gr bullets only make 1.2 on the twist rate but they seem to do fine so I might still try them. I just don't like to run full house in that rifle and Im afraid thats what it will take to come close.
