Try the Midway USA Dogtown bullets. They're made by Nosler. Very good prairie dog bullet. Try them with some 4064 powder.

    Have used Barnes 36 grain g. in my .22-250 for chucks..did a fine job and accuracy was very good..used my fav. powder for the caliber H4895....also shot a few coyotes with the30 grain Berger in my .22-250 AI...did fine, but not a windy day load.....

    I have had the 36grn Varmint Grenade up to 4890fps out of my 22.250 AI with case filling charges of Vit 550.
    I was looking for 5000fps but pressure (blown Primers) stopped my quest.
    Accuracy was poor, grouping 1.5" @ 100yds, even when i dropped velocities down a more sedate 3900fps accuracy did not improve.
    Went back to my old mainstay the 52grn Berger Match Varmint.
    I have now had enough of speed and mediocre accuracy so this particular rifle is currently being re-barreled to 22BR.
