Not too long ago I bought a Remington 700 SPS Tactical 308 Win to have it re-barreled into a 22-250. I had a Hart 1-8" twist 26" barrel put on it so I could shoot the heavier lead free bullets through it at coyotes. The guy that did the barrel swap also lengthened the throat so I could seat the bullets out farther to give me a longer C.O.A.L.Posted ImageThe next time I take a picture of this rifle it will have Krylon paint all over it.I shot 3 different bullets through it today using Varget, Benchmark and IMR 4064. I used one type of powder for each different bullet and I reloaded three different powder charges for each bullet, so I ended up shooting at 9 paper plates. It looks to me like this rifle is going to be a shooter. All 9 loads shot well under 1" groups and some of the groups were under 1/2".Posted ImageThis is the group with 50 gr Varmint Grenades.Posted ImageThis one is 60 gr V-max's.Posted ImageThis is really what I wanted out of this new faster twisted 22-250, a good group with the Barnes 55 gr MPG bullets.The bad news for the day was that I found out my brand new Leupold VXII 4 X 12 scope is getting sent back. The elevation adjustment did not work at all. I turned the adjustment all the way up and then all the way down and the groups didn't move at all.

Nice rifle Bob! Look like the fast twist is the way to go for the non-lead stuff. Good shooting!

That 1in8 twist barrel is the way to go Bob. If you have to shoot the nonlead stuff you need a twist like that to make them shoot. I'm sure that allot of rifles will see new barrels on them unless we can get rid of the no lead laws. That's a good shooter considering they are your first loads to go through that gun.

I put a 1:10" twist, Ppacnor Supermatch barrel on one of my 22.250s, I now wish now that I had gone to an 8" twist for the 80 grain match bullets. The 69 grainers just don't buck the wind as well at 1,000 yards.
