    Not sure what the problem is but according to Hodgdon you are already over the maximum recommended charge for a 50gr bullet. Are you sure of the charge weight in those cases?

    For reference, I took this off Hodgdon's web site:

    22-250 Rem

    50 GR. SIE SP
    COL: 2.350"

    H4350 42.0 3579 48,900 CUP
    H414 40.0 3765 48,600 CUP
    H380 41.0 3742 45,300 CUP
    VARGET 37.5 3834 50,400 CUP
    BL-C(2) 34.5 3740 48,400 CUP
    H335 34.5 3753 48,700 CUP

    Yes I started with 35.0 gr and went to 36.0gr and shoot across the chornograph and was slow then I went to 40gr with no improvment. Then I switched to benchmark with no improvment and was little over loaded blew the primer out at 40gr of powder. The dies I am using a rcbs comp. dies is this the problem /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    50BMG,
    You may want to shoot over another crony! My pet loas in 50 gr vmax,36gr IMR 4895, fed 210M for 3800 fps and shoots in the .2s all day.

    Yes, shoot over another chrony, then try H380 (start with 37 grains with the 50 grain bullets). I like CCI BR2 primers.

    You know, some 22-250s like 4895 and others hate it. Mine did not care for it but loved H380. Both powders are excellent for the 22-250. Varget can be good as well.
