You wont go too far wrong with 38grains of H380 underneath a 55gr VMax or Ballistic tip.Tried and tested by many

Re: *help* 22-250 load

I used a 50gr nosler bt pushed by 36 grains of varget (3750fps) for a while. Now I prefer to use H-380. It is a little more accurate in my 22-250. It is also much faster to load because it is a ball powder and meters much better. H-380 is made for the 22-250.

My current load is 38.5 grains H-380 with a 52gr A-max (3600fps). It is a mild load that holds 1/2 moa or better. I use WLR primers. If you want the best brass get Lapua, otherwise I have gotten longer life out of remington brass than winchester in this cartridge.

If you all are only getting 3750 with 50s and 3600 with 52s something is wrong. I can get real close to 4k with 50s accurately with no pressure and 53s at 3900, both with H4895 or 4064. H380 is accurate, but also dirty as hell.

Re: *help* 22-250 load

Nothing wrong at all, I said it was a mild load, I can get a lot more velocity. I am only at 38.5 grains of h-380. Book max is 41-42 for around 3900fps or so. I like to use a milder load with a high volume cartridge. It is dirty compared to varget but less powder helps this problem too. I am actually building mine into a 6mmbr as it will suit my needs better.
