I seriously doubt you see any issues with the 55grain in a 22-250.

Thanks Outlaw6.0, did you also like the performance on small animals?

    I also shoot the 55 gr noslers with 33.5 gr of varget. Im running them at 3600 fps. Not screaming fast but extremely accurate and predictable out to 500 yds. I used to shoot the 60 gr berger varmiters which were great, but I get a little more performance from the 55 gr weight class.

    Thanks, I guess we need to really look into the Nosler/Varget combo... seems to be pretty popular, not to mention reliable!

    The V-Max is a great bullet, I probably shoot that in more rifles than I do in any other bullet. They always shoot well & have never failed to do what they were designed to do. (& they're cheap to boot )
