Re: high BC for 22-250

I shoot the 55gr sierra blitzkings in my custom 22-250.

Started to go with a fast twist and ackley improved but after thinking it over even a 22-250 is rarely put to the test on coyotes.They are just too hard to see and don't pose for a shot very often.
The sierra blitzkings have .271 bc when above 3100fps so when you send them out at 3750fps they make a good coyote bullet too me.
High velocity seems to make the plastic tip bullets do what i like them to do -knock the crap out of a coyote out too 400yds..
Of coarse a fast twist barrel shooting a 75gr amax would out run the 55's and have the cool factor to boot.
Good luck -Mike

Re: high BC for 22-250

i'm guessing a 1:12 twist is too slow for anything heavier than a 50-55gr V-max/ NBT, here's another question will a 243 win stabilize a 107gr A-max at 3200 fps with a 1:9.25 twist bbl?

The 3 Savage 9.25 twist will group the 105Amax and 107MK but the 2 old 10.25 twists like the 55s and not much else??
The plan for the 6br and 6-284 was to shoot heavy bullets so 8 twist barrels where ordered.
