What loads should I try for 22-250AI

Thought I had a good load of 40.5grs IMR 4320 behind 52gr A-max.Not consistant enough plus loads are too hot now. So I could use IMR 4064 0r H380,IMR 4895,AA2520. Any suggestions all with 52gr AMax.

Those are all powders for a plain .22-250. Go slower with H414 or maybe a slow as H4350.

Re: What loads should I try for 22-250AI

Iron Worker, I agree with SEWWHAT89, go with H414. It works great in my 220 Swift. I use 43grns of H414 with a 40grn V-Max, and my velocity is right at 4200fps in my 28", 1-14 twist Lilja barrel. This load is perfect, I could go a little higher, however, I am not showing any signs of preasure so it's perfect. I am also getting right at 4000fps with a 50grn V-Max with the same 43grns of H414. I think it will work really well in your 22-250 AI. Let us know what powder you decide on, and how it works.

I would suggest using even slower powders, I have 2- 22-250 AI's 1 likes VVN160 and my other rifle likes IMR4831.
all the powders you list are too fast of a burn rate, and H380 is down right dangerous in this chambering. just try IMR4831 with the 55gr bullet you like,save the 40's for a 223

Re: What loads should I try for 22-250AI

Ok I have some H4350 and some IMR 4350. The Sierra book hasXMR 4350. Also some 55gr Sierra pills. They say no two 4350s a alike. What should I try? What 4831 in my AI ? Got some of that also,can I use that for the 55s? I'm going to reloaders nest see what they say?

Re: What loads should I try for 22-250AI

Ok Here's what I loaded. 55gr Sierra Blitzking, In front of 42.5grs of H4831. Went to Reloaders nest .Some one posted 43grs with comment "Just under Max" so I droped it 5/10ths. Now I look in Sierra book and for a 60gr HP they list 44.9 H4831.Confusing. My twist is 1in14. Tried 60 grs before with diffrent powder and they shot super bad. Do you all think H4831 with 60 gr pills will behave differently? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
