A friend wants me to load for a 40x to be used for P dogs.

I have 748, 4895 ,Acc 2230 on hand.

I don't know the twist in the 40x but he is thinking 50 gr bullets. I have hornady and sierra on hand .

I wore out my first .22-250, a Ruger 77 tanger varminter, with 50 grain Hornady SX bullets and 40 grains of H380 in WW brass with federal 210 primers.

My last .22-250 was very fussy. I finally found accuracy with too much Varget under 50 grain SX or 50 grain TNT bullets, it didn't care which. Think the load was 37.5 grains. Primers (Fed 210 match) were **flat**. Case (WW) life was fine. Squirrel life was ... limited. smile It was weird to have a rifle that'd put that load around 0.2 inches for 5 shots of either bullet and yet I never found but one other load that shot under 2 MOA.

CFE 223 in Lapua brass with a 50 gr Ballistic Tip or Blitz King. IMR 4064 has done well too.

39.5 grains of Varget and the 40 grain VMax bullet shoot like a laser out to 300 yards, and will give a coyote a dirt nap that it won’t wake up from.
