Default 22-250 ammo

does Hornady make any 22-250 ammo that's not the v-max?

Not that I'm aware of. Remington has 55 grain softpoints. I don't use those too much because they tear fur up on coyotes pretty bad.

I was about to say no after double checking their website, but I guess they haven't updated it. Just saw this on Midway. Looks like they are now offering a 55 grain soft-point.

We shoot these. Have 100% confidence in them. Never lost one with them. And we shoot all of them through or behind the shoulder.

That’s the ticket for deer.

I think Winchester makes a 62 grain load that supposed to be good.

I use the Barnes Vor-tx in my 22-250. So far has worked well on a handful of deer and hogs.

This is what I've started running after watching some Youtube reviews and tests using ballistic gel. I was impressed and I bought several boxes and the accuracy has been good.

I reload the 50 gr Barnes TXS FB in 22-250 for a friend of mine and he has taken down deer, hogs and axis. Very accurate. Very deadly.

I think you’d be fine with a 12.

I have shot several deer and a ton of coyotes with the Nosler Varmageddon 55gr and it's a hammer. Deer usually make it about 20 yards or less and pile up and coyotes and cats get turned inside out.

My son has been shooting the 64 grain Power point in his 223, he has killed 2 deer this year with it. I have recovered both bullets in the hide of both deer, both had perfect expansion and retained over 80% of their weight. I can't speak highly enough of these and the accuracy is good around 1" at 100 yards. These are available in 22-250, I would give them a try.

My savage has a 1 in 12 twist and really likes the Federal Premium 60 gr Nosler Partition. Whitetail and Axis hate it.....in the shoulder or behind it and they either drop or only make it a few yards.

I usually find it a Cabelas or Bass Pro, but that is a great price...if shipping isn't too bad. Usually order several boxes to offset shipping. No tax helps
