Re: Maximum Distance for .223 or a .22-250
Depends on the bullet. If you have a fast twist rate on either, then you can go pretty far with your shots. Using a 69+ grain bullet will allow you to get out to 800 yards pretty easily if you call your wind right. They do make 70+ grain ammo that will work to these distances and farther.
