Your Favorite Recipes....
« on: March 13, 2009, 06:18:12 AM »
Guys....why not make a post here of your favorite load recipe.  It may be helpful to others.  Questions are always welcome.

BTW, when working up loads, try different brands of brass, don't mix them.  Some of my guns do not like a particular brand.  For example, my Browing Eclipse in 22-250 loves Remington brass, likes Winchester, hates Federal.  My 7mm-08 hates Remington brass and loves Federal.  Have fun!

.223 - I use 50 grain Nosler Ballistic tips, with 26 grains of Accurate 2230, this powder was developed specifically for the 223. Work up loads with these and then try different bullets, etc.  I betcha that if you fine that the Varget and 50 Noslers work, you wouldn't change.


Take your kids hunting before you have to hunt for you kids!!!

My favorite recipe for the 22-250 Remington is 38 grains of Hodgdon H380 with a 55 grain Hornady sxst bullet. makes quick work of any varmint. This is not a maximum load, but it gives good spead and incredible accuracy. I read a reloading article years ago about loading the 22-250 and good that load performed when they were developing the powder at Hodgdon they named the powder after the load.

I'm running light load of 33.5 grains of H110 under Hornady HP/XTP Mag 250's in Winchester and Star brass with CCI SR primers.  It's worked great as a hunting round and took my first buck with it a couple years ago.  Dropped in his tracks.  Very hard on the ears though.

What a shooter.
Hunt hard, teach a kid to hunt, enjoy life.
