Sierra blitzkings?

Anyone had good luck with these for accuracy. Just ordered my 12 twist 22-250 and bought 100 55g pills for it.
Huh! I should find some britzkings for my rifle
Thanks, Mark
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".

I got the 50gr Blitzs for my 22-250. With Rem brass and 35.5gr/IMR4895 I shot a .430" with the first five, during break-in. Consistent load in several guns over the years. It works so well I don't experiment too much, as it is just for dogs in CO. XP action, trued, barreled w/Shilen by GA Precision in NKC,MO. Just remember to have fun. Bob

I like them; use 50g in my 220 Swift (14 twist). Shoot like they're on a wire, and make groundhogs immediately dead. Haven't tried them yet in my 22-250, but intend to this spring.

I've got a 1:12 22-250 as well, and the 55gr BKs are very accurate for long range varminting. They do a pretty nice job on the groundhogs as well. My rilfe will typically hold 1/3-3/8 MOA with these bullets loaded on top of a max charge of Varget. You shouldn't have a problem with them.

Best BC of the plastic tip bullets -H-380 w/a 55gr SBK = dead for varmints and coyotes.

Look at my thread 'only found one' -you can see what a 55gr SBK did to a 250ish yd coyote out of a 1-12 twist douglas barrel rem 700.

I run BlitzKings in my 204(39grn), 22/250(50grn) and 3 223s(55grn). They are awesome on many levels.
