Looking for opinions & experiences here in the reloading aspect of things.
What are you finding, do they like to run hot? Or do they like something more in the middle?
As for seating, just off the lands, or do they group better with a bit of a jump start?
The main reason I'm asking is I have a 22-250 24" 1-14 twist.
Now if you check out the Barnes manual Stickied here:
It shows all the load data is tested with a 1-14 twist, BUT recommends a 1-12 twist for 53gr XXX bullets at the top of the page. These are what I am trying to shoot.
Am I wasting time & ammo trying to get 53gr XXX to shoot in this thing?
To date I've tried 36.5gr Varget 210M Win Brass 53gr XXX just off lands & resulted in a 4" group.
40gr Blitzkings & 50gr Nosler BT both group in the 1/2-3/4 inch range (5 shot).
Powders at my disposal currently that will work in a 22-250 are RL15, Varget, Benchmark, IMR4350,
I also have Win LR primers too.
Open to suggestions
I will also mention I owned another 22-250 1-14 twist that was only 22". It shot the old 53gr X & 60gr partitions Awesome.
