why do people open 6 years old threads?

how deep did they have to dig to find them even?

John, it was probably hanco again... Out of curiosity though, have your loads changed any since then?? Old threads like these aren't bad if they surface again and again though. However, I would never use a load shown on the interweb without first consulting a load manual..... wink

Lawrence...

for the 22.250, I currently use loads depending on rifle and bullet weight, utilizing the following powders:

1. RL 7
2. 3031
3. IMR 4895
4. 4064
5. RL 15
6 AR Comp...

and yeah, I know I'm old school... but they have been working for decades, and don't see the appeal to update to whatever the latest greatest d'jour happens to be this week...

Thanks buddy. I load for a buddies 22-250, but wish I still had my old C prefix model 700 BDL. That was one hell of a good 22-250. I do miss that rifle sometimes... Eventually I'll end up buying another rifle chambered for this round, so threads like this intrigue me...

55 grain Sierra with 36 grains of IMR 4064. I haven't changed this load in 40 plus years. It just flat works in all my rifles.

Varget and 40gr BT is a good combo.

Pretty solid combo there.

That is a good combo, I shot it for years, but with a HPBT...

But I like the way H4895 flows though my powder measure, and it shoots a bit faster!!

You might want to try AA4064. It is a short kernel and meters well. As far as I can tell, it loads like the IMR stuff.

My favorite for over 30 years: 55 gr Sierra Blitz, 39.5 H380, W-W brass, CCI 200 primer. Velocity in my old Ithaca LSA 55 is 3600 fps, and half-inch accuracy. Blitzes fragment on impact and usually no exit wounds on groundhogs.

36.2 Grains of IMR4064 behind a Sierra 52 Grain Match bullet.

A load given to me years ago by a friend of 33 Grains of IMR3031 behind a Sierra 53 grain bullet was also stellar. I read somewhere years after being given the load that Remington used it as their accuracy load. I sure wish I remember where I read that, though.

Now days my .22/250 has a new Shilen .22/250 AI barrel and acts like it wants to shoot Big Game powder behind a Nosler 55 grain Ballistic Tip


At one with the gun.

Mine shot factory Winchester CXP1 50 gr silver ballistic times (.5's) so well the few times I shot it, that I'd start with it.

In my Ruger M77 MkII I haven't found anything to top 35-H4895 and a simple 55 gr Hornady sp. Either with or without cannelure. Does a number on coyotes!
