I have a new 22-250 Savage 12 FVSS with a 1:12 twist and starting on loads.  I currently have IMR 4895, IMR 3031, and XBR 8208.  I am not married to any of the afformentioned, but it's nice to use what I have.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My 22-250 likes IMR 4895 with 55 Sierra's.  H380 has been a good powder with the 52 or 53 match bullets.  Don't over look the 53gr flat base bullets as some barrels like them better than 52 boattails
