Being an Ohio boy I wanted to direct this line of questioning to you guys out west where the shots run a bit longer and the wind is more of a factor or more importantly the guys whov'e been shooting the 250's for a long time and have tons of trigger time with this cartridge. Maybe I didnt search enough so forgive me as this question is most likely already been beatn to death around here. Ive got a new 1:12 turn savage mod 12 and have been shooting ragged one hole groups @ 100yds (when I hunker down and do my part) using Nosler 55gn bal tip with 35.5 gns of IMR 4320. I've also loaded IMR 4320 with the Sierra blitzking in 55 gn but it didnt shoot as well, im thinking a hotter charge may tighten that group up a little more since its got a better bc over the nosler. I'd really like to shoot a longer, better BC bullet so the 60-68 gn bullets keep calling my name. However I realize that I'm right on the edge of going to a 1:9 twist when talking about shooting the 60 -65 grainers . Soooo... Using the 22-250 what gn of bullet do you feel really optimizes the 250's case capacity as far as retaining longer range velocity and minimizing wind drift? Now that I have access to 600 yd shots and beyond Im curious to hear what you guys have to say. Should I stick with the 55 grainers or should I progress to "60+grain land"
