Where to start?
I picked up a .22-250 Model 70 that has a McGowan 28" crown to bolt face 1:12 barrel on it, pretty much a straight taper 1.12 dia barrel. The gun was re-barrelled in 1981.
If you gotta ask, YES it is a bit muzzle heavy!
I figure that I could take out West for some P-Dogs & 'yotes if we get a chance. I haven't put any rounds thru it to speak of yet, the cheap a..ed scope that was on it not to my liking, and I don't have rings to mount a different scope. I figure that if I have to buy rings, I might as well see what I need for reloading supplies.
My question is what should I get in the line of bullets and powders, and what does everybody recommend for a good load? I have primers, 400 pc. brass and a good selection of powders already, but I don't know what's worked for other people. I'll need to buy bullets at the very least.
