22-250 1/10 twist any suggestions

I have a newly built 22-250 with a 26" barrel 1/10 twist, Rem. 788 action, Timney trigger a 2.5 lbs. Shoot a few targets but coyotes and hopefully a wolf (two tags in my pocket) are my main intrest. Anyone have some good recomendations for loads. I have some 50 gr Barnes VG and 75 gr Hornady A Max will they work?

    Your 50`s should shoot good.The 70`s are questionable with 10 twist.

    My buddies rifle as well as mine love the Sierra game king BTH 55 gr with around 35.2 grain varget. Both are shooting damn near one hole at 100 yds. And animals are devastated

    With that rig i'd go right to the 65 Sierra GK. That bullet will net you 500-600 about as good as anything. 53 V-Max is good on coyotes. 50's will be OK but won't deliver the energy and windage at distance like the bigger longer bullets will. You might be able to get the Sierra/Hornady/Nosler 68/69's to shoot too. Lightest i'd go out of that rig for any distance would be the 60 Nosler Ballistic Tip.

    60-65 should work, I don't know about 69. Just keep the pressures low, don't try to push it hard to make a heavier projectile work.

    I would go ahead and give the 70gr load a try but do not be surpised if you have to go with a smaller bullet.

    My 1/12 300 RUM bbl handles the 208gr AMAX just fine when the "internet experts" all said no way.

    Bottom line give it a try but be prepared to search for what works best.

    I am very curious to hear how they work out for you and will be following this thread.

    Best,

    +1 I'd go with the 65gr Sierra GK... crazy good bullet. For a eating machine like wolf.. that's a different story... I'm liken the Barnes TSX-BT 55gr. bullet there.
    Good luck with your new shooter.
