    Any members shooting the 80.5 Bergers with the 22 Creedmoor? Saw the post for the 22-250 AI and was wondering how this bullet would do in my new 22 Creedmoor. Wondering how it would do in an 1:8 twist. H-4350?

    Should do as well as the 22-250 AI. Do not use the same load data.

    42.2gn of H4350, Lapua srp 6.5cm brass necked down, CCI 450 primer and an 80.5gn Berger nets me 3393pfs from a 22" 8 twist rock creek. They are devastating on critters.

    I ended up using 41.0 grs. of H-4350 with a 80.0 gr Nosler CC. A ten shot average was 3511 fps out of a 28" barrel.
