I have a Rem.700 vls in 22-250 and have shot 55 grain Nosler spitzers with 34 grains of 4064 with okay groups. Looking to tighten groups and shoot out to about 500yds. I'm not sure what twist the barrel has. Anyone know what most of the vls 700's had? Thanks

39 gr IMR 4350, first group shot .4 out of a 40 year old sporter weight Rem 700. High winds, hot barrel.
Fastest load development I ever did..... Gotta like the old 700's.

considering that my groups were shot in a Savage, they probably will not work. I like 35.5 grains of IMR3031 with a Sierra #1365 grain bullet seated .002" off the lands. Shot a few .220" five shot groups, and as low as .188". The problem is that The Remington throat might be longer or shorter; thus making the case volume different. Never had a problem with three Savages, as their throats were very similar.

39.6 hrs H380. 50 gr Nosler B.T. CCI 200 L.R. Primer Will have to look in loading data as to where bullet is seated to the ogive. This load is hot and is shot out of a Shilen SS Match barrel. Crows ,groundhogs make a red mist. Very accurate.

Shot a few 53gr. Sierras thru my Rem 700 22-250 the other day with the new IMR 4166. It seems to shoot as well as my favorite H380.
