    PPu 22250

    Well in my local shop the other day to pick up another 100 6.5 privvis for the sako when I saw he had some 22250 stuff.
    Been my fox rifle its always been handloaded for only ever firing 40 factory in its life and that was to run it in from new.
    Anyhows got a box of 55gr sp's just to try he did them at a tenner.
    Well my rifles have always liked them and my sako 22250 was no exception.
    4 shots @ 100m's under 1/2 inch with 3 of them in 1 ragged hole.(and that was resting of the wing mirror).
    I will carry on re-loading for foxes but for practice and rabbits/crows what can I say only that I've rung up and put another 100 away out of that batch.
    PPu strikes again.

    Knowone up here stocks them or I would have given them atleast a go in my .270 and 22-250, as you say, good practice round and if your rifle likes them, even better.
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Is the factory back up and running again yet or is this legacy stuff from the old factory?

    I don't know about other calibres, but the 303 boxes have 2 little paper tickets in them. One seems to have a date code on it (06/08 I think was in the last box I bought), and another one bearing what I presume is a packer/inspector's number. That should give you an idea how old the pack is.
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.
