22-250 load

I recently won a Sako 22-250 bolt action and I want to load the Barnes "Varmint Grenade bullets in 50gr. What is the general opinion on the most accurate powder for this combination?

Thats what I am using in my 308. Has anyone heard about the Barnes Varmint Grenade 50gr bullets working better with a paricular twist rate? 1:10 compaered to 1:14?
