22-250 Load Help

I am looking for a starting point for a 22-250 load. I will be using either 50 or 55 grain Nosler BT, or Sierras. I have loaded some 204 in the past and benchmark worked well. What powders have worked well. Thanks.

    My best accuracy load was 50 grain horn. with h 380 and hodgdon reccomends starting at 33.5 and max at 36.0 @ 3900 with a 50 grain for benchmark.

    My best load was 55gr Horn VMAX with 35 gr IMR4064. About the same w/ Varget. H380 is another good choice in this case.

    My go-to load, though, is a max charge of IMR4064 under the 63 gr SMP Sierra. Bucks wind a little better on Wyoming prairie poodles, and will work fine on songdogs, too. I've had my best luck with CCI BR2 primers in this load.

    My standard load for all the rifles I've loaded for has been 37.0gr H380 for the 55gr bullets and 38.0 for the 50gr ones. I like H380 just because it meters so well and the 22-250 is one that gets loaded in larger volumes.

    Thanks for the replies and keep them coming. I will check out Barnes bullets. I don't have much experience with them. This load will be for varmints out to 300+.

    I like both H4895 and IMR4007SCC in my 22-250. Go to their website for charge info...to be used as a general reference and starting points.
