    I got the best velocity with the 225AB with IMR 7828 out of a 26" barrel. I would suspect that anything as slow or a little slower burning than that would work with a 250 gr. Maybe RL25 or H1000. Hope this helps.

    I am shooting the 225 AB behind 94 gr of RL22 with a vel. of 3177. Dropped a 6 point bull last fall at 600 yards, really hits hard!
