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

Dave

    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.

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.
