Re: new 22-250

I have the same rifle. It has the 1-14" twist. I have only tried bulles in the 40-55gr range. Mine hasn't shown a preference for the 55's at all. It absolutely sings with 40gr Ballistic Tips and 52gr Sierra MatchKings. I reload and haven't tried any factory in mine.
I did try the Hornady 50gr V-Max (factory fodder) in a previous "Varminter" (.22-250Rem) that I used to own and it shot .5".
I think you'll find the .22-250 is a pretty accurate caliber and fun to shoot. Good luck, keep us posted. Johnny K.

Re: new 22-250

I myself have the same rig. Mine has shown it's favorite diet of 52 sierra HPBT Matchkings. Tried every 55 gr bullet on the market and the groups just opened up. It also like the Nosler 40 gr pills as well. H380 and IMR 4064 was the powders that worked best. H380 being a bit more picky when the weather changed. With the sierra 52 grain HPBT I was getting easy .5 accuracy.

Re: new 22-250

I have a rig like that also and just did a small expansion test today with the wildcats in 45 and 52 grain and WOW! I will be doing some accuracy testing soon and will post results here and over in wilcat bullet expansion questions also. Mine loves the same as everybody elses rigs 40 grain BT's and 52 grain match kings but I use VihtaVouri powders ( N-130 and N-133 )to propell alot of mine along with the H-380 and Varget. These rigs are very fun to shot and great practice and also getting extra trigger time!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Guns and ammo, what more do we need?
