Thread: 22-250 First Timer

  1. #1

    22-250 First Timer

    Decided to take the plunge and start re-loading for my Sako75 s/s. Been using factory fodder for several years and she prefers Norma 50 grain v-max.
    Therefore the choice of heads has been made for me, I also have no shortage of Norma and Federal brass.
    What I would like please is recomendations for a good powder, what do you use and why?

    Also, which primers do you use and why? How critical is choice of primer?

    I realise these questions may have been asked several times over, but couldn't find answers on a quick search.

    I am a complete novice so please be gentle with me

    The finnished ammo is only to be used for Foxes

    Many thanks in advance

    Buy a good reloading book and read it. I recommend Lee's "Modern Reloading Volume 2". It will answer all your questions and spare you from endless "quick searches" and questionable advice.~Muir

    Try Varget. Dispenses well and is very consistent. Norma brass is as good as they come. I recomment CC LR primers as they are pretty robust. Start with about 34 grains reloading and work up in 0.5 grains to 36.5 which is pretty hot.

    I've had top veocities and accuracy with N140 and H414 both with mag primers and 50gr heads.

    H380 is a very good powder for the 22-250.

    I use Varget in my 22-250 for 50gr and 55gr and found a huge difference in groups between CCI primers and Remington 9 1/2's which I now stick to.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    I use 41 grains of H380 with 50 grain V max or Nosler BT with Remington 9 1/2 primers. Quite a hot load but deadly accurate in my Tikka.


    If at first you don't succeed, reload
