Does anyone load for this caliber? I'm shooting a 22 inch barrel and I am going to work a load up. Does anyone have a favorite bullet/powder combination for deer hunting? Thanks in advance for the reply.
I have 2 250's a contender and a custom model 600 with a 20" barrel. I shoot the same load in each and they both shoot sub moa. I use Federal match primers, 38 grains of H380, and a 100 grain ballistic tip. Shoots great, kills deer everytime. This is an awesome round. More people should discover it.
My contender barrel is a 14" SSK. It has been a few years since I chronographed this load, but I am thinking it shoots about 2650 fps. I get 2950 out of the 20" 600 barrel. In my guns, this is a very accurate load.
This load is probably on the top end so it is a wise choice to work up to it. I worked this load up about 15 years ago and I have never had any reason to try anything different. It has always shot good and bullet performance from the Nosler Ballistic Tip is flawless.
