    Best Load for 20-250 AI 55gr Bergers.

    I'm FINALLY getting my newly built Savage Model 12, 20-250 AI, which I had built to shoot the 55 Bergers in the PacNor 8 twist, 26" barrel, for long range coyotes... well... longer ranges than what I've been using my 204 for.

    I thought you guys might have some ideas on the BEST Starting Combo for powder, primer, charge weight, and seating depth, that this Baby may like for starters.

    I know that all rifles are different, but I'm hoping that you experienced guys might have a tip or two.

    Thanks in advance... Dan

    I had a 22-250 AI with 8" twist my rifle shooting a 55 gr Vmax loved WW-760 I'd start with 40grs and work up , my rifle really loved Sierra 65 gr Gk with a stiff load of H4831SC for a velocity of 3600 , no Coyote will approve of that load .
