I love 8208xbr. 35.5 gr with a 55 gr blitzking = 10 shot avg of 3716, and accurate. I would recommend it to anybody who loads for a 22-250.

What is bbl length ? I bet that powder would work great with Hornady's new 53gr V-Max.

Its a 24 inch barrel , Winchester model 70 coyote light. This gun is a 1-14 twist, so I doubt the 53 gr v-max would work well. Hornady recommends a 1-9 twist.

I have a T/C Predator with a 22" 12" twist its seems to work so far. I never heard hornady recommended a 9" twist.
