    K that's a lot to process. was hoping to use a light grain but may have to go heavier. Headed to Bass Pro to pick up some different loads and waiting for a windless day. Thanks for your info. It was helpful. Mike

    50gr Nos BT's over a stout load of Varget. I tried the Hornadys and on groundhogs, I prefer the NBT's for damage done.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    There is no "over stablizing." Either a bullet is stable or it isn't.

    The RPF (revolutions per foot) is relatively fixed by the twist of the barrel. The formula is out there to work this out, if it's important. The problem with the bullets coming apart has to do with forward velocity and failures in the jacket, not with RPF. I think it's called the Greenhouse Formula to determine how fast the bullet rotates...generally speaking, a 12-twist will rotate the bullet once every foot the bullet travels, not to be confused with RPM. RPM will be high because generally a bullet doesn't rotate a full minute and it's measured in tens of thousands of a second, not minute. That's like measuring the distance to mars in feet; a meaningless measurement. Obviously, the longer the time of exposure, the more times the bullet rotates. But anyway, I THINK (don't know) bullets coming apart from rotation should be minimized in CNC days.

    Thanks, good pic. too.

    That's what Dan Johnson told me before. The NBT is the cream of the crop on varmints where you want to make red mist and aren't worried about the pelt.

    Gene, over-stabilize is merely a term used to mean over spin where the bullet will possibly come apart. Think SUPER HIGH BULLET RPM!!!

    RPM at the muzzle would mean if it kept rotating at that velocity it would revolve that many times in a minute. Of course it won't last a minute, but that's how fast it is revolving at the muzzle. It's only a method of measuring how fast it's revolving. If I take my car out and run it through the quarter mile, I may hit 100 MPH. That doesn't mean I'm going to drive 100 miles. I may not drive a whole mile. But that's the velocity my car was rolling at the end of that quarter mile. Also, I know the math is out there to figure the tires RPM at the end of that quarter. That doesn't mean my tires will revolve a whole minute at that velocity. It's just a relative measurement.

    Do you have a suggestion for a load for the 1-14 twist and 26 inch barrel? I shot some factory stuff today and it was not acceptable.
    Thanks,Mike


    I haver a Kimber Pro Varmint in 22-250, I tried some factory rds to break the barrel in , couple of brands and my results were like yours, infact I would call them dismal.
    However feed it something it likes and she came right very quickly
    I haven't any data for a bullet as light as you wish to shoot but settled on a 52 gr berger jacketed type local made bullet of around .2-.21 bc

    I settled on 35.5grs of ADI 2206h [H4895] in Winchester cases, COAL length using Hornady comparator 2.033" @3650FPS.
    Shoots very well in mine.
    The flight was uneventful, which is what one wants when one is transporting an Elephant.

    Best load I have developed for my Remington model 700 Varmint with 24" barrel is 40.0 grains of Hodgdon 380 with a Berger 55 moly bullet. 3625 fps average into a 0.5" five shot group.

    Thanks for your input. I use a 52 gr. BT in my .223 and that may be the one I end of with here also.
    Thanks again, Mike

    Thanks for sharing, I haven't tried that load yet but will.

    I'm late to this, but Barnes makes a sintered lead core hollow point varmint line of bullets that are absolutely ridiculous on target.

    Varmint Grenade maybe?

    Thanks, I'll buy a box. I have never used that brand.

    These bullets preserve fur like Oppenheimer preserved the Nagasaki landscape. So, you've been warned.
