No real question here, just an interesting story.
My neighbour came down to my "range" yesterday afternoon to try out some new loads - 50gr Barnes Varmint Grenades in a 14 twist 22/250 with a max load of Varget.
Long story short, we could not get them to even hit a 100m target. I brought the target board in to 25m, three rounds in a 6" spread, all of which hit the target sideways leaving a perfect keyhole cut in the paper.
Comparing the bullets to 50gr NBT's, thay are about 50% longer. I have heard of stabilisation issues and keyholeing in the past, and have had rounds show poor accuracy, but this was unbelieveable. I tried them in my 12 twist Blaser, I at least got them on the paper with a 1.5" group at 100m.
Seems pretty extreme, but I saw it.....
