Will 55gr Bergers take to a 8" twist BBL

My 22-250AI has a 5R cut rifled 8" twist BBL Will Berger 55gr fragment in flight? Sierra Blitz Kings and Nosler BT work great. But 65gr JLK VLDs blow up!

I loaded a few for my 22/6.5x47L and the five or six I fired held together accuracy wasnt that great at 3850ish

22x6.5x47L What is the "L" represent? 3,850 is that top end of velocity ? Where do you get brass for that? What about 75gr and 80 gr bullets ,how fast can you push those? What powder? What was the name of your 3rd grade grammar school teacher? LOL

Just a guess, but I'm thinking it stands for "lapua"

Most of the time when one uses an 8 twist 22 cal barrel it is to stabilize heavy bullets, 75 to 80+ grains. I have a 22x6mm imp 8 twist and I can't keep 80gr Bergers from vanishing somewhere between the muzzle and the target. Went to 80gr SMK's and all is well now.
I would move up to a heavier bullet in that 8 twist barrel, if you are looking for pure speed find a bullet with a thicker jacket than the Berger, the Sierra Match Kings are made with a thicker jacket that the Bergerís or A-Maxís.
Good Luck
Dave

punctuation, spelling and capitalization a pain when replying from my phone....am sure my 3rd grade teacher would be proud...proud that I am not incarerated somewhere.
L does indeed stand for lapua...it is just a 6.5x47 lapua necked down. performance basically mimics a 220 swift, but with small primers.
plus one on the 80 smks.

No time to develope a new load.

With 80 gr Bullet. So far Nosler BT and Sierra Blitzking are working very well.
