22/250 with XBR 8208 ?
So has anyone tried IMR 8208 XBR in a 22/250 with 52 gr bullets? Sounds like a interesting combo to me.
I have not used it with a 22/250 round, but am using it with .223. Had a full bore match yesterday and I walked away with first prize. Score of 200 clean and 11 X's. out of 20 rounds. I had been using Varget, but I seem to get much better results with the 8208. I also found using a mag primer (CCI-450 small rifle) adds to that acurracy.
In this case, I'm using 23.7 grains of 8208 with a 69 grain Sierra match king HPBT, 1/9 twist rifle. [max listed load for a 69 grain bullet is 23.8 grains]
Well.... that's my two cents Hope it helps
I've tried IMR-8208 with 52 SMKs with several loads but it comes nowhwere close to the level of accuracy I get with IMR-4064.
What charge are you using with 4064?
