22 cal bullet with high BC

i am looking to find a bullet to shoot out of my 22-250. i mainly used this for coyotes and fox. i am shooting a 55gr hornady vmax at 3550fps. i am wondering if any of you know a better bc bullet for the 1 in 14 twist barrel.

    your twist is limiting you to how long a bullet you can shoot. I would look at some of the lighter bergers to try and get the most out of what you got.

    I shot the 52gr berger in my 22-250 with h380 powder. It was very accurate and deadly.

    U know if u can get ahold of some 52 JLK Low Drags, that bullet has a BC of .302, which is about as high as it gets for that twist rate. But they're hard to get ahold of these days--try Swampy @
