22-250 load

I was looking for some new loads for my 22-250s and i noticed nobody lists H414 as a go to powder, ive been loading this for over 30yrs.....My fav load in my and my sons rifles is 40grs with a 52 gr speer hollowpt , this load has shot out of over20 some 250s....If at about 300yds or under this load never exits and is devastating to yotes.....Just wondering?

I gotta ask...why are you looking for new loads if you've got the magic potion right in front of you?

Gotta admit I do the same thing. I found a new load for my 250 using imr 3031 and 55gr hornady spire point. Shoots awesome to 300.

I have owned several 22-250's and they all have shot very well with the 50 grain Nosler BT and a book max load of Varget.

Re: 22-250 load

I use to use H380 in my .22-250 when i had a factory barrel. After i burnt that one out i went with a faster twist and heavier barrel. Mcgowen SS Select match varmint contour. After finally settling on a load with 80Gr bergers i was happy.
36gr H414, Lapua Brass, w/ bergers jamed something like .003"?

But the other day i wanted to try some 60gr Nosler BT's for Yote hunting. 42gr Superformance in Win brass shot plenty good so i been using that for a couple months now.

But my 600Yd Fclass round still uses H414. Plenty happy i havent tried anything else for 600yd match load.

I use 38 grains of H380 pushing a 50 grain Hornady spsx. It shoots great and makes mist out of ground hogs and alway stops Yotes in there tracks.
