if you have a Savage with a 12 twist barrel, then try 35.5 grains of IMR 3031 using the Sierra 55 grain bullet (#1365). I get high twos and very low threes with this load. Tried 2015Br (older lots) as they are very similar to 3031, but didn't shoot nearly as well. H380 and H414 work well, but have only used H380 a lot. 2460 is another one to try, but I have not had time to shoot it yet.Looking for a load for 22-250 55 gr v-max I have h414 and benchmark on hand any input Thanx
I got groups slightly over a half inch with 2015BR and rarely shot a group over .30" with the IMR 3031 load in three different rifles. But the 1365 bullet computes to be almost dead perfect for a 12 twist barrel. I shoot 55 grain Vmax bullets in a 14 twist Remington just fine, so your probably OK there. One problem you may encounter with H414 in very cold weather is ignition. Try the same load backed off about a grain and a half over a Federal mag primer.Shooting a sako not sure on twist
Just tried full load h414 not good
And full load benchmark. Not good
Both around 1 1/2
I also consider the I-4064 the best powder for the 22-250 but a charge of 43.1 seems to me a very hot load?I've loaded for many 22/250's over the last 45 years and the vast majority of them shot IMR 4064 the best by far and the load is 43.1 with a Remington 9.5 mag primer... and W/W brass seems to be better than the rest in this cartridge...
