Thread: .22-250 trajectory

  1. #1

    .22-250 trajectory

    well i have to say ive had a absolute gut full of re-loading it just drives me bloody scatty and time is now a bit of a issue now im a dad so im thinking about swaping my .223 in for a .22-250 so as i dont have to carry on being a slave of the press (the .223 has a 1 in 9 twist and wont shoot the normal 55gr factory rounds) and i was wondering what is the trajectory like from the normal 55gr .22-250 factory loads, ive looked at some tables on the net but i never trust them totally and always think its better to hear it from those who actually use the kit
    thanks

    Go for a 50gr and just aim at everything out to 250m's

    As above. Mine with 52gr A-max, inch high at 100 yards, bang on at two hundred, 1.5" low at 250 yards, about 4" low at 300 yards. By the way, these drops are actual observed by me shooting my rifle at these ranges, not a theoretical trajectory based on a computer model.

    i agree 50 grain bullets is what i like to use in mine as well. factory rounds if the winchester silver tips shoot well in the 22/250 you get. then there worth using even though they are pretty dear.

    i have chrono some out of a 26 inch barrel and they where averaging 3800 fps

    thanks chaps for the replies but are the 50 and 52gr rounds not homeloads? and if they are factory rounds who makes them?

    My 52gr a-max load is a homeload, case full of Benchmark basically, can't remember the load.

    Hornady do a factory load with 50gr V-max which is excellent and printed pretty much identically to my 52gr homeload.

    Nearly everyone makes a 50 and some do 40 which will be barrel burners at 4,000+

    I've put Norma 50gn V Max through my Tikka T3 from day one. I zero 1" high at 100yds & it shoots around 1" low at 200, about 5" low at 300. Last time it was chronoed it was 3700fps.

    I have a Tikka M590 and first started using Remington Accutip 50 grain bullets before I got into reloading, I set it at 1/2'' high @ 100 yds and it was bang on @ 200 yds (Grouping was 3/4'' @ 100 yds). I was more than happy with them but I am tight and wanted to play about with the reloads.

    no norma and hornady make 50 grain factory ammo. winchester also make 50 grain ammo using the nostler silver tips.
