    22.250 reloading

    hi. i stalk roe deer in scotland and control foxes in england with my remington 22.250,
    i am hoping the laws will change so i can use it for small deer in england.
    i want to reload with a 50 grain ssp, does anyone have any good brews they can suggest , my husband uses vhit 140 for his reloading but not in 22.250 would this be ok to use for my 22.250

    Hi.
    According to my old VIHT. reloading guide you can use a MAX. charge of 37 GRAINS with a 50gr. bullet, however they recommend a starting charge 10-15% LESS.

    Hi again.
    MAX. charge would give you about 3700 FPS. and about 1520 FP. of muzzle energy.

    36 grn 140 50 grn spsx [ 25 mm 3 shot 100 yds]
