Is that a compressed load? Thanks
no but its a full house load
I own four 22 Creeds, and all four of them drill....especially 88's.
Chomping at the bit to get my hands on some 90gr Atips...
Do you like it better than the 220 Swift ?
I own 3 wildcats and one of them is the 22 Creedmoor. I must say, there was almost no load development involved. It shot a big, one ragged hole from the start.
This is my 16" 22 CM. It really shoots 88's.
You guys are twisting my arm really hard. Couple of good shooting outfits right there.
Im really suprised you dont here more about it.. its a pleasure to shoot and does great at distance..
Can you guy's give free bore on reamer,
And velocity with the bullet you are using please?
Have been trying to decide on a 22x47l
Or 22 brx.
This info will help me make my decision.
I just ordered a reamer from JGS with a .110 freebore. After measuring several different bullets in the 69 to 80 grain range that .110 number seemed to be the best fit. You could use .090 to .100 but it doesn't leave much room at the base of the neck if you find that your barrel wants a little jump to tune well. If you're after the 88's or 90's you will probably want .120 or a bit more.
I think if I was going to try it again, I would definitely go with the 22x47
The 22br doesn't have the speed to make it worth while. (for me )
I have plenty of 6x47 brass and it gives me almost the same speed as my 6 creed did.
So, with a little less powder and a little longer neck than the 6 creed case
might be a good one to try next for me.
22x47L is a good cartridge.
I got in a trade a ruger stainless target 25-06(??) never knew they made it in that caliber. had a 1x8 shilen barrel put on in 22-250 and first load with h-414 and 75 A-Max bullets shot 2.5" group at 500 yds just like your rifle I like the long action for bullet seating flexibility
I'm glad it's working for you, I've heard about the Ruger 25-06 target rifles before, legend says the rifles are real shooters. You'll love it. I'm finally starting to work with a savage 12 in a 6mm Dasher, something about those tiny cases and the performance they give is amazing. I'll probably keep the 22-250 AI but I'm going to look into a 22 cal BR cased round to see if I can run close to it.
I love my lightweight standard 22-250 with SW 4350 and the 80gr ELD so far, might want to look into that also.
What’s the velocity for the 88s out of your 16” barrel?
3K on the nose....
