Long Range Load For The .22/250 ?
Hi, greetings from Sctoland,
I am quite new to long range varmint shooting. I shoot a Winchester Mod70 Heavy Varmint in .22/250 and with home loaded ammo I can achieve 1/2 to 3/4 inch groups @ 100yards.
I use a 50gr V-MAX and 36.3gr of Varget for around 3800fps.
Here in the U.K. I normally shoot small pests such as rabbits and crows.
I am currently finding it difficult to connect regulary over 250-300 yards.
Could anyone please advise me on how to improve my performance, should I use a heavier bullet or try to increase velocity ?
Is this calibre really capable of consistant kills on small pests over 300 yards ?
I would be very grateful for any help on this subject ?
Thanks for any replies in advance,
