Most of the factory 22-250 rifles were not made to shoot lead free bullets. Good luck!

ok thanks...i ordered some 35 grain nosler bt non lead bullets today....any powder recomendations? or how far off the lense i should set them back to start
My rifle likes a MAX load of 29.5 gr of Tac with the 35 gr Nosler lead free bullet that chrono's @ 3870 fps from my 26" barrel. HOWEVER, please keep in mind that your rifle may, or may not like this load at all, and may, or may not be above max in your rifle. Start below 29.5 gr in other words.
For the Nosler 40 gr lead bullets, mine loves Benchmark powder. However, there probably is not enough case capacity for this powder with the 35 gr non lead bullet, as the case is nearly completely full with the 40 gr bullet powder charge.
Finally, and as I always say, the 223 likes LOTS of powders and is almost impossible to go wrong with many of them. Varget, IMR 8208, H335, W748, RL10X, 4198 to name just a few others.

I know in the past with other light weight (lead) bullet hand loads, my shorter O.A.L. would still often times be considerably longer than some factory ammo of the same style and bullet weight. Plus, all I know is, I get excellent accuracy with my snub nosed rounds with both the lead free & lead bullets.
Anyway, the O.A.L for my 35 gr Nosler lead free load is 2.40". According to one of my manuals, standard is 2.60" (for lead bullets).
I know this does not specifically answer your question, but is how I ended up with mine. Good Luck!

Has anyone came up with a good lead free load for 22-250 1:12 twist. I'm shooting a savage predator 10. Thanks

Just wanted to pass along this recipe that shoots really good out of my Mossberg Patriot in 22-250 1:14 twist:
Cutting Edge Bullets 40 grain lead free
Benchmark 34 grains
3 shots into 1 small jagged hole!
