AWESOME ! One of several 22-250 loads consists of 36.5 grs of RL 15 with the 50 gr Nosler bal tip. We increased that to just 37 grs & stuffed it with the 40gr Lead free, resulting in AMAZING accuracy & one very messed up coyote with that load. It was BADCOYOTE's dad that did that btw.
What is your experience with:1. 40 gr. Nosler Lead FREE bullets - 22-250?
Nope, not crazy at all... and yes, different bullets/loads can group elsewhere, but not always!With the load that I mentioned above, the 40 gr lead free hits in the exact same spot as the 50 gr bal tip at 100 yards. We were LUCKY, so it does happen. Besides, you are shooting a REMINGTON, so the odds of success will always be much easier. LOL Good LuckFrank
I have been using H380 - 38 grs with my standard 40 gr. Noslers with great success in my bull barrelled Remington 700. Am I CRAZY to think that the LEAD FREE version will have the same success...but may group elswhere on the papaer at 100 yards?

So far the only lead free 22lrs Ive tried have been the Winchesters. Ive heard rumors about CCI lead free but have not seen any. heres a comparison I did awhile back using a Marlin 25.at 20 ydsat 40 ydsand at 60 ydsnotice the point of impact is higher, and that altho they are not target grade they will shoot.on ground squirrels I have quite a few more crawl aways. they act most like a FMJ, passing straight through. and I dont hear the POP when I make a good body hit. DRPS the bullits Ive gotten are only 27 grains. DR
3. Finally gents....what about the Winchester 22LR Tin substitues...Tin....I guess this is the best they could come up with. I have no experience with these little 36 gr bullets except they are $#@$%^%^%&)* expensive.Many thanks for your time and council on LEAD FREE Noslers.
