temp sensitive

That is why I asked for Varget loads. I found it works well with temp changes. I live in Alabama and do most load developement in the nice summer weather but hunt in Wisconsin in November. Just a slight temp change.

I never achieved spectacular results in my Swift with Varget. Accuracy was okay but the velocities never got to where I though they should be. I may have been able to push a little harder but instead I switched to VV powder s and never looked back. I run exclusively N540 through my Swift and get great results. Additionally, temperature sensitivity does not seem to be an issue at all even with my very hot loads. I run the same loads for chucks in July (90 degrees) to coyotes night hunting in January (single digits). They shoot to the same POI, exhibit no pressure signs and are accurate across the range.

Re: 22-250 and 220 Swift loads please

My swift likes just about everything it shoots. The best so far are

36.4 g varget under 55 g vmax at 3700 fps
38 g 4064 under 52 g smk at 3900 fps This one flirts with 4000 fps in hot weather.

Both consistently group .5-.7 in a factory rem 700 vssf.
