Re: Dog Load ?

I'd recommend the heaviest bullet the gun will shoot well. That is 60gr or larger.

Don't worry about the decreased velocity. The higher BC will take over beyond the 300 yard mark.

Most 22-250's have too slow of a twist to stabilize the 70gr VLD, but if your 22-250 has a 1:9 twist that is an excellent option. Also the 60gr V MAX and 68gr MBTHP are also excellent options if the rifle will handle them.
