If I knew you were wanting replies from intelligent people I wouldn't have replied. I am pretty sure most of the intelligent 22 caliber center fire shooters were not shooting lead free bullets until they were forced into it within the last 18 months. What it comes down to is, if the only lead free bullet that shoots real accurate in a 1-12" or 1-14" twist barrel 22-250 is a 36 grain bullet, those 22-250 rifles won't ever be the rifle that they were while shooting 52 gr to 60 gr lead bullets.
. I would like to use another powder.. the barnes manual and the load data doesn't work for the most part is what I was told... I understand that most people go back to their usual loading information.. I know there are a lot of very intelegent people on this site regarding firearms and everything related to the topic.. I would like to pick their brains for info. I have learned a lot from this forum.. and am glad I found it.. the 36 gr stuff is much lighter than I was using

Maybee not. I have a friend at work that is shooting the 50gr VGs in a Rem. 700 22-250 that has a 1-14 twist.
I think you will be stuck on the 36 gr .You will need a 1-10 twist in order to shoot 50 gr and above.

It just so happen that I fired some test loads today at the range with my 22-250 using the 36 gr Barnes VG and H335. I got good results with my 2nd load so I didn't bother to shoot the others. I had a 5-shot group that measured .616 inches using 35.0 gr H335, Fed 210 primers, Win brass, w/ 2.350" O.A.L. The rifle was a Win Varminter SS bull barrel. Hope this helps.
COULD YOU HELP ME? I have a 22-250.. 1/14 twist I would like to load 36gr barnes varment gernade.. WHAT POWDER WOULD YOU SUGGEST and how many grains was using 760.. thinking either that or H335... NOT SURE... I HATE THIS NEW COPPER JUNK.. got my rifle just the way I wanted.. it is like starting over..The barnes reloading manual is worthless.. THANK YOU
