    That's a good choice. Given the plethora of factory ammo brass is everywhere. Did you decide on what twist and length?

    22-250 or 250AI, 22x47L or 22 creedmoor with 8 twist tubes for the 80/80.5's. I run a 22" 8tw in 22 creedmoor and it's a sweet shooting round. Plenty flat and just wrecks hog and coyotes. I run the 80.5's at around 3450-ish. Still working out the load, but based on drops, I am in the neighborhood.

    If you had a 223 action, I would say 7twist 223ai and run the 77 TMK or 80.5 berger.
