    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

    I've killed thousands of prairie dogs with H-380 and 55 grain Ballistic Tips.
