Default 22-250 Shooters and Reloaders chime in

I bought a Tikka T3 Varmint 22-250 today.

I've never had a Tikka nor a 22-250.

She has a 24" barrel and 1:14 twist

I would like to push a 50-55 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip

What recipe do y'all recommend?

I shoot 36.5 varget and a 55sgk

Varget

Benchmark or

Xbr 8208 should all do the trick

There's others but these have worked good for me

50-55 grain for deer and pigs. The 45 grain bullet made by Winchester comes in 40 bullets bricks is a hollow point and it's nasty for small stuff it's pushing 4100 fps. I have shot multiple pigs with head shots, shot 2 axis does behind the shoulder shot not much blood but recovered them.
