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.

Re: 22-250 Load Help

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.
