Re: Finally my first semi longrange gun
Get some sierra 55gr. blitzkings -they have the best bc of the plastic tip bullets that a factory 1-12" barrel will stabilize.
You can get them in 500 count boxes.
Those and 8 lbs of hodgdon varget powder and you're set.
Buy a couple of hundred cases [brass] winchester is good and shoot the h--l out of it -a 22-250 will go a few thousand rounds before you'll need a new barrel.
A 22-250 makes a good 200+ yd. whitetail deer rifle -i wouldn't go after a huge trophy buck w/it but run of the mill bucks and does will go down pronto w/ the right bullet of coarse [nosler 60gr partition].They are a flatbase bullet and will stabilize great w/ your 1-12" twist.
I have been a fan of 22-250's since i was a teen -you will love shooting it -very low recoil and a lot of killing power w/ the pinpoint shots it's capable of.
A 'varminter' as they were known as in the early days is a good 400yd predator/varmint rifle.
There is a 22-250 bullet in my cabinet that has a wolfs name on it!!--Mike
