    .22-250 55gr Blitzkings

    Having developed a lurvely little bug holing round for my .22-250 using 55gr Gamekings/Blitzkings and 35.5 of (Dare I say......) Varget, with the ongoing scarcity of the precious powder...has anyone else got any good loads/alternatives for this bullet weight out of a .22-250 (1 in 14 twist)?

    In my 22-250 A bolt I use vmax with 38.5 gr H380 with fed magnum primers. Clover @ 200 yards

    I don't know if this is any help to you, but a similarish load of benchmark is excellent. Reloder 10x is also excellent - if you can get it.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    I use 38.5gr of H380, this gives 3727fps out of a 26" barrel

    41gr of H380 looks not just warm but hot to me.

    To add to the confusion with 55gr in a 1 in 14 try 37gr of N150 and seat the bullet to give an ogive reading of 1.955" if a factory barrel - I can almost be certain that you will be able to shoot >.5" groups. 6 of the 7 rifles in 22.250 I reload for do. Forget all this mumbo jumbo about having to be less than 40 thou from the lands for this calibre to shoot well..

    Its worked in an r93, rem vssf, custom tooley with hart barrel and more recently a tikka 590. Load was safe in those rifles but pressure indicators were telling me it was approaching levels which would be the upper limit of acceptable in all uk conditions. Ps. There is no shortcut to finding the best load for you rifle.

    Jonny.C......Blaser R93 22".....shhhhh!!

    Thanks for the suggestions....It looks like H380 is a popular choice. I also have some watch this space!

    Many Thanks
