    Anyone had good luck with these for accuracy. Just ordered my 12 twist 22-250 and bought 100 55g pills for it.
    Huh! I should find some britzkings for my rifle
    Thanks, Mark

    Blitzkings

    I got the 50gr Blitzs for my 22-250. With Rem brass and 35.5gr/IMR4895 I shot a .430" with the first five, during break-in. Consistent load in several guns over the years. It works so well I don't experiment too much, as it is just for dogs in CO. XP action, trued, barreled w/Shilen by GA Precision in NKC,MO. Just remember to have fun. Bob

    I like them; use 50g in my 220 Swift (14 twist). Shoot like they're on a wire, and make groundhogs immediately dead. Haven't tried them yet in my 22-250, but intend to this spring.

    I've got a 1:12 22-250 as well, and the 55gr BKs are very accurate for long range varminting. They do a pretty nice job on the groundhogs as well. My rilfe will typically hold 1/3-3/8 MOA with these bullets loaded on top of a max charge of Varget. You shouldn't have a problem with them.

    Best BC of the plastic tip bullets -H-380 w/a 55gr SBK = dead for varmints and coyotes.

    Look at my thread 'only found one' -you can see what a 55gr SBK did to a 250ish yd coyote out of a 1-12 twist douglas barrel rem 700.

    I run BlitzKings in my 204(39grn), 22/250(50grn) and 3 223s(55grn). They are awesome on many levels.

    Just loaded 400 50-gr Sierras for my 22-250 last night. Good night Mr. Pdog. Oh, and another 100 in 40 gr. just for kicks. Smokin'. The former load is very accurate and the 40 is not bad either.

    love em in my 204! the 39 grain sierras got better bc than the 40grain v-max. the sierras also do less fur damage than the v-max, over 100 yards never had a exit hole on coyotes or fox. I use the 39 grain blitzking when i'm after fur. When i'm not i use the 40 grain v-max cause its cheaper to buy. I've shot coyotes at over 500 yards with the blitzking if hit right they go down right away. One at 550 i got 2 inches behind the ribs it went 200 yards before going down. Not a big deal around here if they run that far cause its flat as can be! You can see them go for a mile plus!
