New 22-250

Just got a 22-250 and would like some reloading information. Plan on shooting small varmints and up to say 40 lbs pests......
What bullets, primers and powders would a person get? Have Varget and some 06 powders.
The rifle is a 1/12 or 1/14 twist, old Rem 700.

Re: New 22-250

My favorite loads are:
40.5 gr H380, CCI 250 Primer, and 55gr Hornady W/Cannular or 55gr Vmax
40.5gr Ramshot Biggame, Fed 210M Primer, 53gr Hornady Vmax

Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

Re: New 22-250

I use a start load of h4895 and a 55 fmj out of my 22-250 pistol (savage) for a 3K fps load that'll put 5 in a moa out of a 14" pistol. I also run a full tilt 760 load with the midsouth 50 gr private label bullet. Both are Hodgdon data and standard primers.

I shoot Varget in mine. 45-55 gr Hornadys mostly and I use CCI primers mostly...but Win primers at times.

Ive got a Rem 700VLS and a Stiller custom built that I use and the Varget works fine in them.

Re: New 22-250

The magic recipe in my 22-250 is 35.8gr Varget behind a 50gr Sierra Blitzking. In fact, I served said recipe to a groundhog last week and it blew his mind. Literally.
