Ramshot Big Game in 22-250

Wondering if anyone here has shot Ramshot Big Game in this cartridge? I have been using Varget, but the Ramshot is $5/lb cheaper. I shoot 50 and 55 grain bullets, and rarely shoot anything near max loads. Thanks

I mostly shoot IMR 3031 under a 55 grain bullet in my 22-250's, and this stuff is easilly a hundred feet per second faster! (35.5 grains @ 3550 fps). Gotta try it out

I have tried 3031, I found it worked better in my 45/70, now IMR4064 was great, except my Dillon powder measure doesn't like it. I have also had good luck with H380, but it is the same price as Varget.

Yes I do pushing a 53gr Vmax, the terminal ballistics are awesome.

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.

whatkind of velocity were you seeing? Also how clean does the stuff burn? Max load in my hand out from them is 39.5 grains with a 55 grain bullet.
