    Not sure what the problem is but according to Hodgdon you are already over the maximum recommended charge for a 50gr bullet. Are you sure of the charge weight in those cases?

    For reference, I took this off Hodgdon's web site:

    22-250 Rem

    50 GR. SIE SP
    COL: 2.350"

    H4350 42.0 3579 48,900 CUP
    H414 40.0 3765 48,600 CUP
    H380 41.0 3742 45,300 CUP
    VARGET 37.5 3834 50,400 CUP
    BL-C(2) 34.5 3740 48,400 CUP

    Yes I started with 35.0 gr and went to 36.0gr and shoot across the chornograph and was slow then I went to 40gr with no improvment. Then I switched to benchmark with no improvment and was little over loaded blew the primer out at 40gr of powder. The dies I am using a rcbs comp. dies is this the problem [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
