Thread: Reloading my first 22-250 rounds

  1. #1

    Reloading my first 22-250 rounds

    Just reloaded my first batch of rounds since I've had my 22-250 followed the instructions from the guy I bought it from going out tomorrow evening to test them out then hopefully do the rest
    any advise welcome ?

    Double check and triple check every step of the process. If all is well then get a mate to pull the trigger!

    "followed the instructions from the guy I bought it from"

    Check what you have been told in a reloading manual or post the details on here as a cross check.

    Chris - so that the 22.250 reloaders on here can see at a glance that nothing glaring is wrong with your copied recipe, can you advise what bullet, powder/weight you are using

    PS Char beat me to it whilst typing!!

    Looks quite long for OAL but powder and charge is below max on the Nosler manual so good luck
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not using it in a fruit salad.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they never get it wrong.

    All sounds good Chris, although testing a magnum primer in the future may be beneficial, however only ever change one variable at a time otherwise your load developement will lead to nothing but confusion
