Re: 22 dasher

Thanks far the replies everyone. I realize I'll need a 243 bolthead, custom dies so far are going to be the hardest to locate. One person on another forum sudgested getting a 22br die and use my reamer to hog it out.

I also read that although the 22-250 ackley would be the easiest way to go that the brass by I'ts nature in that round is not very strong just above the cartridge base? I beleive one would have to check this with calipers as you reloaded to stay away from case head separation?

I would also like a round that offered the fine lapua brass, so as far as I know there is no 22-250 lapua brass,I'd have to make it from 243 or 6.5x47 perhaps? Which sounds like extra work to me.

Perhaps I should do a 22 cheetah or 22-243. I realize they wouldnt differ that much from the 22-250ai but I was after something a little more off the beaten track. I really dont care about eating the barrels or the like, I simply thought the dasher sounded like a cake and eat it too round. Thanks again,

Re: 22 dasher

I have had 22-250 ackley, 22 dasher's, and 22-243 ackleys. For the amount of speed you get for the powder used, the dasher is the winner. I have the resize reamer for the 22 dasher. I would suggest you get a 8 twist barrel and you can shoot 75 to 90 grain bullets. You can 3300 fps pretty easy with the 80 grain pills. The a-max kill ground hogs and deer with authority. This is not a tinker toy it is a legit 1000 yard round. Dies are not a big deal. Seating die ream a 22 br either forster or redding. And i can make you a full length sizer. I would buy a newlon bushing sizer blank for $50 and ream it. The 22 dasher is a very good comprise in 22 cal and is hard to beat. The 22-243 ackley is a very fast round and accurate but is is over kill for most target shooting. E-mail me or call if you have any questions. Cell 724-366-1989 Reed
