    Just got a 22-250 and would like some reloading information. Plan on shooting small varmints and up to say 40 lbs pests......
    What bullets, primers and powders would a person get? Have Varget and some 06 powders.
    The rifle is a 1/12 or 1/14 twist, old Rem 700.

    My favorite loads are:
    40.5 gr H380, CCI 250 Primer, and 55gr Hornady W/Cannular or 55gr Vmax
    40.5gr Ramshot Biggame, Fed 210M Primer, 53gr Hornady Vmax

    I use a start load of h4895 and a 55 fmj out of my 22-250 pistol (savage) for a 3K fps load that'll put 5 in a moa out of a 14" pistol. I also run a full tilt 760 load with the midsouth 50 gr private label bullet. Both are Hodgdon data and standard primers.

    I shoot Varget in mine. 45-55 gr Hornadys mostly and I use CCI primers mostly...but Win primers at times.

    Ive got a Rem 700VLS and a Stiller custom built that I use and the Varget works fine in them.

    The magic recipe in my 22-250 is 35.8gr Varget behind a 50gr Sierra Blitzking. In fact, I served said recipe to a groundhog last week and it blew his mind. Literally.
