60gr Nosler 22/250=Wolf any thoughts

Postby Duplex lover » Wed Aug 22, 2012 1:40 pm

I worked up a load to shoot Antelope this year but my state decided not to give me a permit,SOOO. :sad:

What do you think of a 60 gr Nosler partition with 35.5 gr Varget out of my T/C Varmint 22" 5/r 1X14 22/250? :huh:

I've shot it and have it Zeroed at 200 yards and most the time ,If I do my part, I can keep 5 shots in a nickle size group off my Stony point sticks. The speed is averaging right at 3500 fps in 90* weather and at 4000 feet elevation. With the Varget I should keep most of the speed in the winter I hope. I plan on doing a lot of hunting for wolf this year and would be very disappointed if the bullet let me down. I have a fantastic 75 and 85 gr load for my 243 but really want to use the 22/250. Am I asking to much out of a little 22 pill? :thumbsup:
Just thinking out loud...

The 60 would get the job done if you do your part, but I would personally go with the 243 and a heavier bullet. Go with the gun you can shoot the best, or fits your style of hunting best.
