I think I found a good accurate factory 55 grain for my 22-250. Calhoon bullets by hsm. They shoot great , time will tell on terminal performance. ill check it out before going crazy and buying a bunch of squirrel loads. Calhoon said they work great on coyotes. We shall see I hope. I just measured the 3 -shot group at .265 . I am saving ammo otherwise it should be a 5 -shot to really see..Attached File  mime_attachment.jpg   42.36KB   45 downloads

I believe you'll be happy :D with the Calhoon bullets. I believe they term them as their "double hollowpoints". I shoot them out of my 17 Rem and they smack hard.

Good for you Eric... I have no experience with Calhoon, but if they work well that is all that matters. Look forward to hearing how they do on the coyotes.Frank

hold the thought . the first shot in a cold barrel dont shoot for toot. 3"s off. might go to the 50 grain v-max
