Anybody else have problems with a 1:14 twist 22-250 stabilising 55 grain pills. Im pushing 55 grain nosler bt's out at 3500fps over N140 and getting a shotgun pattern. The rifle shoots PPU 55 grain soft points quite well so i thought the same weight in a ballistic tip would be fine.
I did a bit of research and apparently it is not 100% down to the weight of the bullet but also the length. The noslers are actually quite a long .22 cal bullet at .0810 so was thinking to maybe try the sierra 55 grain semi points which are .0690 long. I dont really want to drop back to 50 grains and wondered if anybody had had issues stabilising these bullets in a 1:14 twist barrel.
Would i be correct in saying that shooting a 55 grain bullet from a 1:14 twist is right on its limit? What are your thoughts on the ideal twist for a 22-250??
All help appreciated as always
