ok, got 'em loaded up. using the same OAL as GB, 2.355"

using a Lee collet neck sizer.

using the 50 grain varmint extremes, 35, 35.5, and 36 grains of Varget in my .22-250 ADL Varminter.

going for a quick range trip, will develop loads at 50 yards and then shoot the same loads at 100 yards when i find an accurate one.

my rifle hates the IMR 4064 loads. the varget loads, it shoots in identical tiny groups. very impressed with the accuracy at 50 yards while sighting in and shooting to develop a load.

going to move to 100 yards tomorrow.

will post results.

I have no recollection why I chose it. I have not done any experimentation on it yet.

boss, what do ya think of me seating these at 2.40" or so? when you have smaller groups but still not quite tight enough...seems like you'd want them longer, not shorter...right?

not much experience with remingtons, what do yours usually go for?

Not necessarily. It's all about barrel harmonics. If you have a bullet that's capable of good accuracy and a load that gives low SD then it's merely a matter of figuring out where the barrel harmonics are optimimum for your gun. That might be shorter or it might be longer you just really never know.

As a for instance: In my Rem. 700 LSS chambered to .257 Whby Mag which has a lot of freebore as is the SAAMI standard for Whby magnums I was shooting some Nosler 120 PTs and Barnes 115 TSX. I set the TSX at the C.O.L. Barnes suggested and they seem to shoot extremely well. The Nolser 120 PT showed promise but since the Barnes was shooting better I decided to seat them deeper aka further from the rifling to the same effective jump as the Barnes and it actually shot better shorter than it did longer.

You really just can't make generalizations about what's gonna work right. Just experiment and let the rifle tell you what it likes.

ok trying 35.5 and 36 grains of Varget again. those showed the most promise.

seating the bullets at 2.375."

if this does not work i will switch to my other go-to on my bench, H4350.
