    An addendum to original post. Picked up a 700 varm. 26" fact bbl. and is 1st 22/250 rifle that doesn't like 4064 for me. It does love 35.2 Rl 15, 52 amax, fed std. lr prim., .015/020 off lands in any case(so far), 200 yd. 5 shot 7/8". 20 shot 300yd f/class style prone off bipod 41/4 by 31/2 grp. 18 of those shots would have launched a pd.

    Shot the smallest 5 shot group I've ever seen out of my gun tonight. My rig is a savage 12 VLP with a 8 twist 26" shilen varmint contour barrel, sss comp trigger, hs psv118 stock and nss cnc recoil lug. The barrel has a .252 neck, set at minimum headspace and I shoot lapua brass with necks .012-.0125"

    75gr Hornady A-max
    Federal 210M
    Lapua Brass, neck turned, .001 neck tension
    35.4gr Viht N550
    jammed .010

    5 shots capable of 1/2" done on more than one occassion. Tonight I put 5 into an honest .420 end to end at 100 meters. The group looked like a 4 leaf clover and the wind wasn't even close to being ideal.

    I just started working on that load this week too. If it wasn't for the cartridge guide i never would have put N550 behind an AMAX. I've been using it for 69gr MKs for a while now. I never thought the AMAX could be capable of that accuracy

    I find it hard to shoot the heavies into teeny tiny groups. My rifle seems to favor a hard hold which seems unusual to me

    Primer brand and type:CCI BenchRest

    Brass brand:Remington, Winchester

    Powder Mfg. and type:IMR4320

    Powder charge in grains:35.0

    OAL and seating depth:2.330

    Velocity and barrel length:26"

    Comments: I am shooting this out of my Kimber Model 84M which is supposed to have a match quality barrel, fluted, 26", and a match chamber and 3 lb trigger, that is adjustable. I can shoot one hole groups at 100 yds with this load. I have a good load using the same powder and Hornady V Max 50 grains. Also a one hole group at 100 yds. Interested in it?

    Rifle, Savage Model 16, 22-250rem Std Chamber , 1-12 twist Varmint Barrel works even better in a 1-14

    Bullet, Midway Dogtown, HPFB
    Weight, 34 Grains
    Primer, Winchester LR
    Brass, Nosler 22-250
    Powder, Hodgdon Varget
    Charge, 34 Grains
    COAL, 2.255 inches
    37,500 CUP Virtually the recoil of the .223
    3,600+ FPS Very Mild load good in Hot summer 100+ or 6' winters
    34+34 is a simple and basic, accurate to 200-225 yards as it only has a .150 BC 1-1.5" @ 200
    It has killed many P-Dogs and Squirrels, too light for Coyotes and Chucks. No recoil, able to see all shots thru scope.

    My load for the 22-250 in a T/C encore;

    50gr berger target or varmint
    37.0 gr H380

    This load will stack them one on top of another at 100yds for me.

    Bullet mfg, bullet weight, bullet type: Serria 1330 50 gr. moly coated (easier cleaning)

    Primer brand and type: Federal 210 Gold Match

    Brass brand: Remington

    Powder Mfg. and type: IMR 4007 SC

    Powder charge in grains:39.5

    OAL and seating depth:.0006 and .0010 off the lands. Rebarrelled 2 700 Rem rifles this year and the lead is .0004 between the two. I shoot same load in both. Chamber is short throated as I purchased the reamer to my spec's.

    Velocity and barrel length:26 in. Kreigers 1 in 14.

    Comments:
    I shoot "Dogs in MT." 5 Shot Groups were .457 and .479 @200. I have in the past used 4064; Varget; and 4895. The new barrels liked 4007 best. Did not get a chance to Chrono as got the rifles just in time before leaving for MT to work up the load and load the ammo.
