hi. i stalk roe deer in scotland and control foxes in england with my remington 22.250,
i am hoping the laws will change so i can use it for small deer in england.
i want to reload with a 50 grain ssp, does anyone have any good brews they can suggest , my husband uses vhit 140 for his reloading but not in 22.250 would this be ok to use for my 22.250 :confused:

Hi.
According to my old VIHT. reloading guide you can use a MAX. charge of 37 GRAINS with a 50gr. bullet, however they recommend a starting charge 10-15% LESS.

Hi Ladystalker

I use Vhit 140 for .308 and .22-250 have tried 50 grn spsx head but get a tighter group with 55 grn head

35.4 grn 140 55 grn spsx [best load 15 mm 3 shot 100 yds]
36 grn 140 50 grn spsx [ 25 mm 3 shot 100 yds]

hope this helps

Hi lady stalker
You can use 22-250 for muntjack and CWD
in England. 👍as far as I know low haven’t changed for small deer.

37g (top end) of Viht 140 with 55g Nosler Varmageddon.............probable the easiest caliber I’ve reloaded for and very accurate.

Echoing above, 36-37gr of N140 behind a 55gr projectile works well for me. Used to use Varget but not noticed any different in transitioning into Vihtavuori’s offerings, probably shoot 2-300 rounds year and no major shifts between summer and winter temps.

Forgot to add the old adage: start low as per manual and work up, above data are in the top end of pressure limits.
