IMR 8208 recipie

Has anyone worked up a load using a 70 grain BERGER VLD with this powder in 22-250 with a 1 in 9 barrel?

Not too many 9 twist barrels in that caliber around. My factory 22-250 14 twist did not shoot well wilth 55 gr. Nosler BT and 8208.

I ordered this special from Savage last year. Not there standard twist rate. I wanted to shoot the heavier bullets at longer ranges.

I tried 8208 in my 22-250 with 50 grain Hornady V max bullets and the groups were terrible. With RL10 X I get 1/2'' 5 shot groups. with IMR 8208 my groups ran up to 3"!
