"I knew a guy who" used 12 grains of norma R1 and filled the rest of the case with tannerite on his 22-250 and was getting 4250 with a 55 grain ballistic tip, primers were a bit flat but no other signs ofpressure.

.243, hybrid bullets, BLAH BLAH BLAH!

The guy asked about the 22/250 but it appears that it's damn nigh impossible to stay on subject!!

"Thread Drift" is OK as long as it doesn't drift into politics.

I am farily sure I'll go with .22-250 for coyotes in a new Ruger American. So far it is, on average of all tests I've seen, one of the most accurate "inexpensive" rifles out there. I wish they made it with a stainless steel barrel so I could get several hundred more rounds from it.

I have some heavier .22 cal bullets I'll load up and see how they like the factory twist.

For sure I'll Fire Lap the barrel as soon as I get it. A smoothly lapped bore just seems to shoot more consistently, plus it fouls up more slowly.

Somewhere there is a village idiot who will actually believe this.

Yeah, really, Tannerite as a load! When I was that I thought to myself "Well, after all, this IS the internet where you can get great banking deals from helpful Nigerians."

Amazing!

Really, R1 and tannerite, his new england arms 22-250, barska tactical scope, trigger job, limb saver harmonic dampening barrel donut, shimmed redfield scope rings, ramline stock shoots 1/4 moa "all day long"! His friend told me. * amusement only, please dont load tannerite or norma R1 in any quantity in a 22-250.

Re: 22-250 good for Coyotes??

One of my favorite cartridges! I have one in a Rem 700 and another in a Ruger M77 Hawkeye. I use them bothe for yotes and targets and they really are a pleasure to shoot. I live in SE Oklahoma so most of my kills are inside 200 yards but with the 40g Vmax's and 36.9 grains of Varget, kills are instant and no hide damage due to no exit. I've used some 55g soft points but have found that the exit hole ruins too much fur for me. The soft recoil and surgical accuracy of my rifles even has my wife enjoying them! With my handloads, I get one hole groups at 100 yds all day long if I do my part. You won't go wrong with a 250!
