    Good powder for .204 and .22-250

    Hi folks, What would be a good powder generically for reloading for a .22-250 ans a .204 ruger.
    Thanks

    N133 seems to be working well in my .20 TAC which is quite close to the .204, never loaded .22-250 though

    The 4895's, Varget, Benchmark, 335, 3031 and others. You might not get maximum performance from both using one powder but they will go bang and kill stuff. I found these with a quick glance at Hodgdon's site. You might want to check out the other makers and see what they list for both.~Muir

    I've not reloaded .22-250, but I find 10X produces excellent results in the .204.

    RX10, benchmark and h4895 all work great in the 204 but I recently tried some R15, vitn140 and varget and they also gave great accuracy.
    These three powders also work great in the 22-250 so I would choose one of them.

    Loaded for both these cals.

    RL 15 - great powder in both these cals

    Varget - If you can find it.

    H4895 - another very versitile powder that gave good results.

    I don't have any Viht 140 on my propellant shelf but I do have some R15 and some Varget so would be interested to know what loads worked well for you with these powders in the .204R.
