Re: What 55 grainer for Savage 22-250?

[QUOTE=BMF;742381]I also shoot the 55 gr noslers with 33.5 gr of varget. Im running them at 3600 fps.

That's a misprint ^^^ I'm actually at 35.5gr. of varget, not 33.5.

    Yup yup...
    Might I ask what's your barrel length and roughly what velocity you're getting?

    I also use the 55 gr nosler varmint ballistic tips.
    I had a good load with 33 gr imr4895 but something happened.
    Now I'm trying RL17 but haven't finalized it yet.

    Varget does very well and is temperature stable
    H380 does well but is more temp sensitive.
