I hate to say it, but 5 jugs at 30 yards is about all my 264/7mm's can do at 30 yards with 140 and 160gr bullets. That thing looks awesome. What load Jim.. Now I am a little mad I didn't any of them for the 22-250!

Were they accurate in your rifle?

That's a tough little bugger hopefully they will make them available for the rest of us.

Scotty

My load was 34.0 grs Varget, W-W case and Win LR primers.
Accuracy was well under an inch, 2 in 1 hole 1 out. I will play with the seating depth.

I would recommend you get some when they are available again.

Without a doubt. I will have to give them a whirl now!

Thank you for the information, it looks like I will have to try these out on some blacktail with my daughter this fall.

That would be a sweet test for the 22-250 and them bullets Jim. I don't think you'll have much trouble with em..

Kinda breathed a little life back into the 22-250 huh? I might need to give them a shot...

Think a 1:12 twist would stabilize them in a 223rem?

I know faster is better but does anyone know if a 1:14 twist 22-250 MIGHT shoot these or is it a no go?

Jim that is amazing! That will kill deer for sure and with authority! I can't wait for you to try it out. Might have to shoulder shoot one to get it to stay in a deer though!

It would be interesting to know what Nosler recommends for a mininum twist.
My ballistic program,,,which generally is a bit conservative it seems to most, figures it to need a 1-10.3" min. twist. But then I was guessing at some of the inputs, not having a bullet here to measure. Then again it sounds like JD was/is getting good accuracy in his 14" (I believe) twist.
I know many a .22 CF's have brought down deer and tougher game, just not my first choice however. It would make for a darn good bullet for Wolves imo, now that they have season on them here.

JD,,,what is the nose length and meplat dia.? I might get more accurate results in the program.

5 jugs is indeed impressive! The few I have shot, have shot well. I plan on getting more when available.

My wife busted a doe with one of these last weekend out of her 22-250. Shot was about 340 yard. I first ranged them at 300, but they got up and milled around a bit. the shot ended up a bit slower than I would have liked, but it still plowed right on through the heart and clipped the offside shoulder. Made a nice exit wound. I'm very impressed with this little bullet. I'll get a few pics up of the ones I recovered from the dirt at the range. The ones from 300 yards weighed 50, and 53 gr, while the one from 400 yards weighed 59 gr!

I'll get a few done in some chem jugs at those ranges just to see how they compare to all my other tests.

Great performance in the jugs. That bullet is very blunt so I think the b.c. would be low. These bullet tests are really great and I love reading the tests on here.

Did some bullet testing today. The little 64 gr BSB did just as well as my 270 Weatherby with a 140 AB @ 3250, and a friends 270 win with a 130 PT @ 2950. The recovered 64 gr BSB broke the plastic in the back of the second jug, and dented the face of the third. It weighed in at 59gr!

I had lined up some 2.5 gal chem jugs. I lined them up in a fasion so that I was shooting at the narrow edge of the jugs. My thinking was I would get more water travel per jug that way. I do think that I need to switch to a thinner jug though. Every bullet I have shot into the chem jugs has been found stuck in the plastic on the far side of the jug. Generally the second one. Only my 280 AI with a 160 AB, and my 375R with a 260 AB have ever made it into the third jug.

Here it is compared to the 130 PT (middle) and the 140 AB (83 gr. Left)

That is one serious penetrating bullet.
I have no doubt it would go through both shoulders of a WT and exit.

It definitely penetrates. Give it sufficient velocity and it will kill very effectively.
