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...

Gives good ES and cleans up easily after a lot of shooting.


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.

Took to the middle of 4th page before someone mentioned BENCHMARK! As far as being fussy, I've never found the 22-250 to be fussy! Before the coming of VARGET, IMR 3031 was the powder that I thought would never be surpassed for usability across a wide range of chamberings.......222-375H&H. Then VARGET showed up and it works so well thru a measure and also that extreme range of capacity different cases. H380 got its name for 38.0 grains and 55 grain projectiles in the 22-250. 40 grains of WW 760 and tbe 52's works splendid also. The new releases, CFE and 8208 have given good test results also. But for now my go to powder for my own 22-250 (Ruger Target Gray) and a friends VSSF 22-250 is 33.5 grains of BENCHMARK. My rifle likes SIERRA 55BK and his shoots Nosler 55BT. .GHD

Charlie,

in each of my 22.250s Benchmark didn't do so well at the max listed for it with each bullet weight...

however, when I used the starting loads, they each were shooting little bitty groups... don't know if others have experienced that... but it held true in the 5 rifles in that chambering, plus a couple of buddys' rigs...
