    try 55 grain bullets with 36.5 grains of varget and cci br primers.this should produce 3560fps-it is accurate and not a hot load but as ever start 10% down and work up.Also you will need to experiment with seating depth to fine tune your load.good luck Richard.

    Sorry.

    What does "put in for.." mean?

    You don't need these items listed on your FAC in order to purchase them from a Firearms Dealer?

    (Although you can only buy primers to suit the calibres already on your FAC).
    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.

    55g nosler varmint 36.5 grains varget, federal primers, federal cases, 24inch barrel, gives me 3770fps. sub moa group at 100yards. please work up to this load. took me 6 months of fine tuning the head seating to get it right. and at sub zero temps the group drops and widens but only to about 1 1/2 inch.

    I also recommend varget powder, 55g bullet - especially if its a 24 or 26" barrel. For my rifle I use 55g sierra spbt, 36.5gr of varget with br primers, giving a velocity of 3815fps out a 27" barrel.

    The Nosler varmint work well too.


    Remember, very important......always work up a load that suits your rifle.

    Varget is very hard to get hold of

    I highly recommend a 55gr Hornady V MAX propelled by 38gr of H380. H380 was born for the 22-250!!!

    From Hodgdon website: This was an unnamed spherical rifle propellant when the late Bruce Hodgdon first used it. When a 38.0 grain charge behind a 52 grain bullet gave one hole groups from his 22 caliber wildcat (now called the 22-250), he appropriately named the powder H380.

    I personally found success with a 41.0gr charge of H380 (Hodgdon was using a 52gr head & im using a 55gr head) - but 38gr is a good place for you to start and work up.

    Beat me to it, 38 to 41 h380 and a 55gn bullet. Work up, 41 can be a bit on the warm side... Which is good!!!
