    YES, 50gr Hornady soft point,36grs Varget, very accurate and very effective on roe out of my Tikka T3 .22/250

    It's the type of bullet not how heavy it is that counts.

    The above cover it, wouldn't use a Vmax, I would use a decent SPBT.

    That 36gr of Varget load seems to work really well in a bunch of 22/250's.

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

    I agree with this especially in the lower end of the bullet weights. One of the reasons that roe were not included in the 2007 ammendment to allow the use of CF .22's in England and Wales was that the majority of bullets loaded in factory ammo were intended for vermin use, not that the calibres themselves were not suitable. There was quite a bit more to it than that but it was one of the factors. JC

    I am using 25Gn benchmark with 55gn SP in the 223. H380 was the order of the day in the 22-250, both work like a charm at stalking distances.

    It is not what size it is, it is what you do with it. This is a wee roe doe, not a monster like the english roe. 17.2kg on the hook!

    +1 but I would opt for the sako ammo as mine shoots it better.
