+1 on the 52 A-Max or 52 SMK. Lots of powders work great in the 22-250 just take a look at any reloading manual.Get a box of 52gr hornady amax bullets and a pound of hodgdon varget powder and start working up to max book load.
It looks like the 55 grainers are working well. I shoot 55 grn Nosler Ballistic tips over 35 grains of Varget and it has proven to be accurate out of a 12 twist 26" tube ,MV= 3620.Hey thanks to everyone for the much needed info!
I am really just putting holes in paper with this one.
.413 @ 100 yards today with 55 BlitzKing, 33.3 Varget five shot group.
1.462 @ 200 yards today with 55 BlitzKing, 33.3 Varget five shot group.
Todays temp right around 48 with no wind.
Thanks again and please keep the info coming
God Speed and Merry Christmas
Hey everyone I am lost in the woods on this one.
Remington 700 Sendero 22-250 1-14 twist 26" barrel.
I am wanting to see if I can work up a load for 500 yards.
Any and all info would help out I am starting at zero.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
