Re: BLC-2 and 22-250 help?
Pick up some Hornady 50 grain SPSX's part number 2240. I know they cost a little over 5 bucks a box for 100 bullets but believe me, they are worth it. They incorporate all the latest accuracy tricks in the book. They have exposed lead tips and real copper jackets with the all-important flat base design. I have shot them over 3800 fps with no trouble with them coming apart. They are by far the most accurate bullet tried in my rifle and is my, go to, bullet for any 22-250 that won't shoot. They light up ground squirrels better than any other bullet we have tried to date. In 6 different Rugers and a Remington this load goes sub 1/2 inch for 5 shots every time.
I have tried all the off the shelf bullets out there. For a seating depth, seat one long and then force the bolt shut on it and then set your seater up on that one and then twist the seater stem in 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn.
My secret load is 39 grains of H-380 in Remington brass lit off with a CCI-250 primer on totally non prepped brass other than neck sized only with a Lee Collet die. In my rifle it shoots the same groups size from 37 to 42 grains but settled on 39 grains as they are still okay to shoot when I accidentally leave my ammo on the dash and it gets to hot to hold. I then prime the cases with my Lee Auto Prime tool 50 at a time. I also don't weigh powder charges once the measure will throw 10 charges into one pan that weighs exactly 390 grains. Then I throw 50 charges in a row before I move to seating bullets.
Using this painstaking process I can load 50 rounds in about 30 minutes on my RCBS single stage press start to finish. I never trim my brass and prefer to just throw them away when they start splitting necks. Some brass has gone 20 times and some like my current batch are splitting on the first go round. I want to try Winchester brass next time.
These carefully crafted loads will shoot .1 to .3 max in my factory untouched Ruger Varminter. It is religiously cleaned once or twice a year whether it needs it or not. It really depends on if it got wet or not.

Only accurate rifles are interesting.
