Anyone running one?

What are your favorite loads? I recently had a Ruger #1 rebarreled with a 1:7.5 twist 26" Benchmark barrel.

Shot it yesterday with the 131 Ace bullets and the 128 hammers. 52 gr of 7828scc produced 3000 fps and flattened primers and some sticky ejection. Too fast of a powder I guess.

I had to start somewhere and now I know.

Going to start with 53 gr of RL33 this weekend and work up. Either bullet with decent pressure at 3000-3100 fps would make me happy.
I’ve had good luck in a standard twist bbl 1:10, with 115 Berger’s VLD’s and RL 25.

Hey guys. I have a 22/250 ai I tried to load some 55gr, but found out that I have a 1:7 twist and @ 3200, I was blowing up the bullets.
Now I have ordered some 70 gr Hammer Hunter and going to try to start @ about 3000 and go up on speed a little at a time.
I am going to try 38gr IMR4831, 30.6gr RE 15, and 32.5gr IMR 4895
Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated
Really should start your own thread.

I have a 7” twist 22-250AI mid range F-class rifle that runs 77g CC at 3150fps out of a 30” barrel, I run Varget as my accuracy load, it’s mild and nice to my Lapua brass. I can run it at 3400fps, but it’s not necessary and is far more accurate at the slower velocity.
My run it at the ‘ragged edge’ load is with H4350, I don’t use any 4831 powder, just has never got the oomph for me in any cartridge I ever tried it in. No longer buy it actually.

Cheers.
