    Just about every 22-250 I have seen will shoot either varget or h380.

    If you can get it I would say CFE223, I haven't seen it in Havre yet so I'm using Biggame with very good results.

Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

    Thanks guys.... much appreciated!

    Joe, I thought I read in another thread you were shooting the 53 VMax's in a 14 twist barrel. If true, are they stabilizing OK?

    Used to shoot the 55g V-Maxs in a 1-14 twist without problem.
