For hunting I have found myself using 55 gr. a most exclusively. For targets, I like the 69 gr SMK. All my rifles have 1:9 twist.

I am thinking of buying a Savage Model 10 Predator Hunter in 22-250
8.5 lbs plus scope say 1.5lbs = 10lbs - 24" bbl & 12 twist. Any views on it.
Loaded with Hornady 53gr. V-Max (.290 BC) and 55gr. GMX (.245 BC) for deer. Any views on the GMX? Also is 12 twist ok?

I have a 1x9 twist RRA Coyote Carbine that likes the following in order.

1. 75grn TAP FPD
2. 69grn SMK
3. 55grn V-Max

All groups are under 1"@100yds. The TAP ammo is consistent at 200yds.
