22-250 Fast twist heavy bullets

Hey fellas. I know bad form for my first post asking for information but I'm at a loss for info. A little background; Been shooting for years, handloading for about 1 1/2 years. Shoot 22-250 and 223. Rebarreled a Savage 12fv with a McGowen 24" 1:8 twist straight cylinder 22-250rem.

Started breaking in the new barrel with what I know, 53-60gr bullets with H380. Tried some varget and wasn't impressed with the metering but I'm past that now. Loaded some 70gr SP with h380 and didn't do too bad but that's the max I can find data for.

I'm in the process of locating load data for 22-250 with an 80gr bullet. I'd prefer any knowledge with Reloader22. And from what I've seen here, from searching,the guys with the AI versions seem to like about 39gr of Reloader 22 to start. Is this going to be about right for the 22-250rem? If anyone has recipes that are low so I could work my way up. I'm also open to different powders. I would be most appreciative. I'd prefer not to have the gun go bang with projectiles out the wrong end.

Side shot of the rifle in question, case you'd like to see it...;

Thanks in advance.

Re#22 in 24" Standard 22-250?????

I shoot a 22-250AI with 26" BBL. Re#22 is too slow for that. Try H4350 I'd say start with 35grs. Plus jam that bullet into rifling lands.That is you say 80 gr bullet right? Check out Reloader's Nest - a reloaders resource

Like Iron Worker, I shoot an AI version of the 22-250. In playing around with it, I found that Ramshot Hunter was able to get extreme velocity with 60 grain bullets. Try it and start around 34 grains and then work up. Good Luck

Fast twist 22-250

These loads were worked up in a Savage LRPV 1:9 22-250.
The load worked with 80 gr. Bergers but 75gr. AMAX's were cheaper so that's what I shot the most of. I tried lots of different combos & what I got the best results with was anywhere from 37.5 - 40.0 grs. H4831SC. Liked it so much I bought an 8 lb. jug. I used an old 8mm arrow shaft for my drop tube so I wouldn't get a ring around the AMAX during the seating operation. I don't no what the velocity is. It didn't matter much to me because it was so accurate. The home range is out to 400 yards so the come-ups were easy. I had no pressure signs what so ever, but as always start low & work up for your rifle.

Thanks for the hints fellas. Accuracy is my main objective but if speed comes with it then great.

Re: 22-250 Fast twist heavy bullets

I have just decided to build a 22-250 w/ a Mauser VZ 24 action that I have. I want to shoot the heaver pill --60-80 grain. I would appreciate any suggestionns you may have. Has anyone already done this?? I am thinking 26 in barrel, maybe number 3 contour. Any suggestion please on twist? Is there a happy medium??. I want this to be a long range weapon, out to 5 or 6 hunndred. { that's long for us } What do you guys think about Douglas barrels?

Thanks,
ironhorse18@verizon.net
