I also read the 70gn Speer was specifically developed for slow twist 222 so have some of these to try, not the most streamlined but 70gn!
    If my results are no good with these then it will be back to 50gn or thereabouts similar to what you have. Tried 55 tts couldn’t get them to group. Only used 2208 so far as have a heap of it.
    Shot some federal premium factory stuff today with the 60gr Partition and it kind of gave me mixed messages, shot two groups and both of them grouped two right beside each other and one about 6 inches away, but both groups totally different poi. I've determined it doesn't like them for now anyhow. Shot some old remington factory 55gr sp stuff and it stacked 10 shots into a sub inch group. It just kept putting them there so I kept firing them! so will look at similar projectiles for a start

    I used a 250 for years to shoot bunnies in central, nearly killed the barrel in a weekends shooting...

    I used to load 34gr 2208 55 vmax for 3600ish.

    I switched to Hornady bulk 55gr SP wich killed the fallow and goats well but noticed a few inches more drop compared to the vmax.

    My cobber always swore by the 60gr vmax for everything up to fallow / sika.
