    I am shooting the 50 grain vmax in my 22-250. Just wondering what you guys are finding this bullet likes as far a jump to the lands for the best accuracy. I have been playing around with seating depth, and it seems for my rifle that about 0.02 to 0.03 jump is working the best. I have tried from about 0.05 to right against. Please give me your opinion and experience.

    I've never tried the 50gr, but I use both 53gr and 55gr. I have no idea what my jump is, it's long though. My 22-250 is free bored and the magazine is even longer (older savage 110) so I just seat em deep enough that I feel comfortable that the neck provides a good support for the bullet. Doesn't seem to hurt anything though it's still outshoots me hands downgun)
