Steve Ridgewell: When I read the initial post here in your thread I thought to myself "aahhh... this guy is just another CONTRARY"!
Then I read your subsequent postings and I have changed my perception of you from being a "contrary" to you being an "idiot"!
Anyone attempting to make unsubstantiated attacks on the wonderful 22-250 Remington cartridge, like YOU have, is either an idiot or ill informed - to the MAX!
Sheesh.
I have owned a few 225 Winchester Rifles in the past - the best thing I can say about them is "I made a profit on each of them when I sold them"!
I currently own 12 (twelve) Varmint style Rifles in caliber 22-250 Remington and could not be happier with them.
I suggest you re-think your idiotic contentions regarding the wonderful 54+ year old, amazingly successful and amazing performer, the 22-250 Remington cartridge!
Double sheesh.
Sheesh.
Sheesh.
Long live the 22-250 Remington!

When I read your post for the first time, I thought, "Ah, he's just jealous because I own more 22-250s than he does." but I changed my mind when you used the word "idiot". You're senile, but fun to have around. Perhaps you can hold your breath until someone apologizes.

laugh I own 13 22-250s - the older carburated models, not the new FI ones that you own.

Did you know that WWII was almost lost because US Rangers refused to carry Gebby Varminters? It's true. Until 1941, Gebby Varminters were smuggled out of the US through Mexico, and taken by submarine to England where the British Home Guard used them in defense of their island. It's true. It was the damn Lend-Lease program!

Winchester cartridge!
Triple sheesh.
Sheesh.

Actually some of them were pretty.

Might I suggest 50 gn Ballistic tips with Big Game and 210m Primers.
IMR 4064 also works very well.

Cheers,

Ah, yes, I remember now. WWII almost lost- in '41 .....the sub was captained by Harvey Lovell. Also, Col Townsend Whelen smuggled Vespas into Africa to be used against the Desert Fox.

I'm surprised they let VG near a computer. He continues to demonstrate poor reading skills. But it's probably his great grandchild, posting from home, pretending to be Great Grampa. laugh

I say what ever floats your boat and have fun. The only down side I see is buying brass cheap, but I did see Winchester still sells factory ammo. Good Shooting

Thanks. I was lucky enough to buy 300 pces of brass at regular prices. I added them to the 225 pces I was given.

Thanks for that. I have contacted a Cdn importer to see what their price per hundred is. I got Winchester made brass, but I would like to try Quality Cartridge brass.

It will be interesting to hear your take on this brass. I think they may want too much for 100 pieces.

Had two model 70 heavy barrels back in the early 80's-when we still had groundhogs.Both had Weaver K 10 scopes and were amazingly accurate with 32 gr.4064 and 53 grain bullets.

I don’t know If I think they are beautiful . But I like my 1964 M70 225 so much that I bought it’s twln in 30/06 when I stumbled across it. They are both tack drivers and fit me well.

It's great when you can own something that is not only a good shooter, but historical. And a nice looking thing to boot! I am hopeful that I can functionally check Franken-Rifle II tomorrow. Its cousin. the 6x45mm, shoots like a house on fire.

A customer had a Savage model 340 (?) in a 225 - the ONLY one I've ever seen, shot, touched, etc...

Had to order the rounds for it - Obviously NOT popular in sough Georgia.

The more I looked at the round the more convinced I became (and still believe today) it was all Marketing.

220 Swift, 225 Winchester, 22-250.

Same as 7mm and 30 calibers, and now the 416s.
