I shoot 50 and 55 grain slugs and they hit the same place?? I got a box of 45 grain bullets so I may load some of them.

Varget. It's been about a year since I've put .22-250 rounds together, and I can't remember how many grains of Varget I used. We moved into our new house about 6 months ago, and I still have some of my reloading stuff in boxes in the garage. I'll see if I can unpack a few boxes this weekend to find out what I used.

I use H-380 now. I Had used IMR-4350 with 55 grain Nosler Solid base.
I'm shooting the Barnes TSX 53 grain with 39 grains of H-380. At 38 grain my groups were around 1.5"-2" @ 100 yards. I added one grain of H-380 and it helped stabilize the TSX bullet in a 1-14" twist barrel. Now there shooting cloverleaf groups. And there is no fur damage on Coyotes.

Also I'm on my third 22-250 and they've all shot real well. M 700's

First things first if it has the crappy plastic stock get rid of it and put a better stock that the barrel is floated on it stock pressure does funny things as the barrel heats up, And I use Varget I have used H380 and found it to be very heat sensitive and verifyed with my chronograph. I use 55gr v-max bullets and my gun likes them .015 off the lands. Have fun with your new gun.

Ahh the memories. My favorite rifle was a Winchester Featherwight M70 in 22-250. After I had it bedded and with reloads I had less than dime size groups at 100 yards all day long. I too used H380 with 55 gr pills. I really miss that rifle. It was superb at its job. The Coyotes really hated that rifle!

if you decide to go with the barnes varment grenades , do not use the 50 grn . they will likely be too long and need a faster twist than 1-10

36s are about as long as most 50-55 gr soft points
and the 50s are about as long as the 62 gr ss109s
