Would anyone like to share a starting load with RL17, RL 19 or 4831, 4350 starting loads for Hornady 88's for the 22 Creedmoor or 22-250AI.

Thanks

Do you happen to have a sister and does she have any Indian in her?

What is the value in running 88 grains out of the .22-250 as opposed to just running the .243 win, maybe even .243 ai?

I live at 3000 ft elevation and all the hunting I do with this rifle will be at this elevation.

Question 1-7 or 1-8 twist
3 groove or 4.

I already have die and brass so the Creed argument doesn't much matter.

Thanks

since I have a 22.250 with a one in 7 twist, and has a 243 length magazine... I like that, so yeah.. 1 in 7.

With 88 elds I'm shooting

38.0 grains of RL 17 in a 22 creedmoor with alpha brass.
3100 fps from a 20" barrel

36.5 grain of H-4350 in a 22-250 AI with winchester brass.
3025 fps from a 22" bbl

These are safe in my rifles, work up accordingly.

So you know, 64g Winchester Sp, 65g Sierra btsp kill deer and hogs in the 22/250 AI. I shoot them through the slats. Remarkable accuracy build confidence in taking neck shots, shoulder shots, lung shots, diaphragm shots. Also, 80g A max shoots holes through deer on broadside shots in the 22/250 AI.

Those 50 lb hogs make for some really good eating.

If you like a race gun, 22-6 Rem AI, 51g of Retumbo with 80g A max at 3650 and NEVER full length size a case...never. Push the red line at 3800 with the 80's. Go long action on this rig for a Remington.

Confidence is everything...Aim Small-Miss Small-Stuff is not hard to kill!

Of course, 22 Creed is the EASY button!....I am set up for the 22/250 AI...for now.

The 22-250 is such a likeably cartridge though Keith. One of my favorites for sure. Does your AI have a 1 in 6.5 or 1 in 7" barrel?
