    I like the sound of those 70 grain Speers, my 22-250 is 1/8 or 1/7.5 not sure. What speeds do you think you will get with them and with what powder ?

    Well after taking in the great suggestions & looking online I came up with these thought the partitions could be worth a go , bullet construction seems pretty good someone mentioned a short bullet mite stabilise better .

    I used 55 gr core lokt Remington factory rounds in my 223 not sure if you can get them for reloading but would think 60 gr partition or any monolithic 55 gr or bigger for penetration .went to 243 after last deer I shot a large bodied stag at 53m seemingly unhit walked away thankfully it only went 20m into the bush and layed down to expire felt then that 55 gr wasn't enough for decent penetration maybe better at higher velocity.

    the adi guide has them starting at about 3000 fps for the powder's listed,have a look at the 68/69 gr match stuff as well

    I tried Barnes 55gr TTSX in mine and they were awful as won’t stabilise. Yet they’re great in my 1-8” .223. If you can get them to shoot in your 22-250 I’d be keen to know what powder you use.

    Nosler BT 55gr and Horny V-Max 40 & 53gr are all incredibly accurate in my 1-14” 22-250. Have shot one red deer with neck shot at around 200m with 40gr and decided will never use it for such a large animal again.

    Dead is dead, but I’ve now committed the 22-250 to target shooting and long range bunnies, cos feel the small projectiles aren’t ethical on deer, as conditions are seldom as good as they were the day I shot it. Each to their own though.

    55gr BT, 60gr Partition and 69gr SMK are my favourites in my .223 1-8”

    Let us know how you get on

    Use the 55 gr SP Hornady. The bulk lot with the cannelure. Book max of 36.5 of 2208 will do the job from up close to further out. If you want to use the 60 gr partition, then try 42 gr of 2209. You'll need a drop tube to get it in. Gives around 3640 in my rifle. Works well, but expensive.
