    Except for maybe the Blitz or SX type bullets, doubt you'll have any problems with lighter bullets in the 8-twist 22/250 AI. I've shot many 53 and 55 gr bullets through the 8-twist Krieger barrel on the 22X47L without any blow up problems. Was surprised at how many of the loads shot with good accuracy. Vic

    Just ran across a deal on 500 vmax 53 grain bullets. Apparently they didn't shoot well for the fella that had them. Hopefully my gain. Been getting alot of good reports of guys using them in 8 twist 22-250 guns and really liking the way they shoot.

    I bet with all that RPM spun up, a 53 from a 1:8 will make a nice mess o' Jell-O!
