RL 7 will run them easily at about 3750 fps.. despite what others think....

no one looks at Rl 7 anymore.. because it has been around so long... same thing with IMR 3031...

You guys that are using RL15 powder, any of you try it with 40gr Nosler BT's? I got both on hand and will be the first combo I try once my new 22-250 shows up.

no but factory book loads will run them at 4130 fps predicted.. and up that a grain, and it will run them 300 fps faster...

convert that over to a 35 NTX lead free and you are way over 4500 fps...

ackley33806,
Its the wood stock, very nice gun. I have been shooting the factorys until I get the brass stock up and it is really accurate. Still so many choices.... Bagged an 8pnt yesterday so I can get back to loads and targets.

+1 for IMR 3031 with a 55 grn V-Max. My Rem 788 will consistently shoot .5-.75 groups all day. While its not the under .25 groups often discussed here, for any hunting I do its plenty.

36.1 Varget (work up)Fed 210 and 55 Sierra Blitzking does it for me. 5 shot groups measure .481"

Seafire,

Where are you finding RL-7 data for the .22-250?

As you can see, your .22/250 will probably work with many medium burn rate powder.

I have owned 2 rifles so chambered, an ADL from 1972-1985, and a M70 with a Shilen barrel since 1985.

I have mostly used 55 and 60 grain bullets with IMR 4320, 4895, 3031, H414, IMR 4064, IMR 4350 powders. With both rifles the accuracy difference was negligible despite what powder was used.

So, as the man said try what you have on hand.

If your starting fresh pick one of the listed choices and you should get great results.

ok, well, does anyone have any experience with the new CFE 223 for use in .22-250 and .308?

its a fairly interesting powder, from what i have read, but nobody seems to have any actual experience with it.

I'm shooting CFE 223 in a 22-250 using 50gr bullets (vmax, , zmax,varmint extreme, etc.) Really love this powder in the 250. It shoots with excellent accuracy and is fast. 37gr is giving me 3,900 fps with a 26" 1x14. Haven't even tried to go past the minimum loading recommendation. Gives good ES and cleans up easily after a lot of shooting.

Just picked up the 2013 Hornady Load Manual, the Magazine style...

it has load data for CF223 and also for the new 17 Hornet..

actually one of the better ones I have looked at over the years here... so I picked it up after looking at while at Barnes and Noble last night...

CFE223 worked well in my two 22-250's as well... AR Comp is maybe even slightly better.

My. 22-250 really likes H380. Friends like TAC also but I have had such good results with H380 why try something else.If it ain't broke don' t fix it. Good Luck on your load search.

I think what this post is showing is that the .22-250 isn't fussy
