  • I reload both 220 Swift and 22-250.  Tried different powders but not those listed.  Best results for the Swift are with IMR 4320.  For the 22-250 found H380 to perform best.  The Swift has a 1:14 twist and performs best with 50 gr bullets or less.  The 22-250 is a 1:12 and likes 55 gr. bullets.  Check the twist in your rifles since it may limit bullet weights .
