    short barreled 22.250 load

    Hi all
    Can anyone suggest a powder for this combo 20" 22.250 , 60gr hornady sp ,fed gold medal match primers brass is fire formed ie once fired factory and neck sized only. Im looking for a good roe load for scotland.Im thinking a bit faster burning than standard with a shortish barrel and a heavyish bullet for the caliber.

    yours nigdonn

    Vit N130 is too fast.

    I use 32.0 Vit N135 with a 63gr Sierra SMP - which is also range legal at <3300fps.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    i think i will run H380.i shoot 55gr berger hp for fox control on 37.5gr h380 into 1/4" groups but the 60s with the same load are over an inch.Ithink it will work i just need to work on it.

    I'm a big fan of Benchmark in the 22/250, if you can get it.

    However, it is in the N140 ballpark for burn rates.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    22" barrel....Sierra 55gr Blitzking with Varget 35.5gr are giving me sub .5 MOA

    Mind you...might have to swap to powdered unicorn horn with scarcity of Varget!
