Hello, I shoot a 22-250 Tikka T-3 Varmint.

My favorite hunting load is a 50 grain V-max , H-380, Norma brass and CCI primer. I like H-380 its a ball powder and it flows through your powder dispenser like water.

I have had this gun a couple of years and have a Leupold VX-II 6-18 target knob scope. Have shot coyotes, 1 badger, 1 deer and a few digger squirrels. The furthest kill I have made so far with it is 635 yards on a rockchuck in 12 mile an hour winds.

My most accurate load is a 52 gr Sierra Match King, BTHP. Same powder, casing and primer as my hunting load.

Thinking about getting new dies, I do not like my RCBS dies. Thinking maybe Lee or Foresters.

Does any one have a pet load using this combo? Also when I got the rifle I bought 2 boxes of winchester 45 grn hollow points. Just to get to shoot and then start with that brass for reloading. When I started reloading them out of 40 cases I had to throw 4 of them away because the neck was split dwn to the shoulder. Is this common with winchester brass? these were stock factory loads. I have never had that happen with remington brass with my 300 and actually have never seen brass split like that
maybe your bullets are touching the lands of the barrel best to load the 22-250 at a jump of 0.010 of an inch sounds to me that you have a lot of presure building up,.if you dont know how to do this email me back...
