Re: 22-250 1/10 twist any suggestions

The 75gr bullets would not stabalize. Most of them hit 100yd target side ways about a 12 inch group. The 50 gr Barnes VG did pretty good. Loaded up 20 rounds with different wights of powder. On the way to the range I droped the box and spilled bullets on the ground. Like shuffling a deck of cards. So I have to start all over!!

    This thread is making me rethink a purchase I am/was about to make... I've been looking at the Tikka T3 Lite Stainless in 22-250 as for a coyote/varmint rifle. The twist rate on the Tikka is 1/12".

    Correct me if I'm wrong but won't the Tikka be even less likely to stabilze the hearvier bullets?

    (sorry if this is hijacking).

    60gr is about as heavy as you will be able to go.

    Thanks for the information. I think I can live with 50g and 60g bullets in 22-250 for predators and varmints. One Tikka, coming up.

    Word of advice, the Hornady 53grn V-max has the highest BC of all the lighter weight bullets. You can use the 64grn Berger, but its a flat base and you only gain .004 on the BC. The Hornady has a BC of .290. You can push it faster and flatter. That is what I am currently load developing in my Savage LRPV 22-250. It has the 1:12 twist also. Groups are really small. I'm quite impressed.

    I also have the Tikka T3 in a 22-250. I don't reload. Hornady Custom 50gr VMax shoot really well. I haven't tried the 55gr VMax yet but plan to.
