What twist barrel and at what range are you shooting?

I am currently working up loads in my Rem 700 in 22-250 right now. Everybody at the range who had shot the 22-250 in competition said to start with a 52 gr bullet with 38.0 gr of H380. It shot very well under a Hornady 52gr BTHP, CCI primers. Did not chrono.

I am also starting to work up some different powders and 52gr AMax and am switching to Fed Match primers.

1in12" twist 24" heavy barrel. I will post some more results afetr I get to the range.

33.5 gr Varget, 55 gr Nosler Ballistic Tips @ 2.42 OAL give me 3415 fps out of a 26" tube. These loads shoot .3 for me consistently.

36 gr Varget, 52 gr A-Max give me 3620. usually .4-.5" groups.

38 gr WIN 760, 55 gr Sierra BTHP give me 3450 fps out of the same gun at .3"

.......but I prefer the Noslers for a little better killing efficiency = DRT!

Hope this helps you out a little.
