Thread: Best Powder for 22-250 & 308

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Best Powder for 22-250 & 308

    I am loading 55gr heads in the 22-250 and 150gr in the 308. I want to keep things simple and just use the one type of powder (and cost down).Any recommendations as to the best powder for the above appreciated.

    Vit N140 used it in the 308 and 22.250 for years, flows very well .

    Cheers

    To be honest I don't have a 308 any more but I have a 30 cal still , I have looked in my book and 45 grains of N140 with a 168 lapau .

    For the 22.250 I load 35 grain of N140 this is for a 55 grain Veemax very accurate and have done very well on targets to 500 yds.
    As with all reloading you should work up your loads and not jump in to were other people are at , what is good for my gear might not work safely for you .
