Rem 700 22-250 loads

I picked up a Remington 700 (1966) in 22-250 this spring.Rate of twist is 1:14.Tried powders of H380,Accurate 2230,4895,and 4064.Bullets of Sierra 50gr,55gr,53gr,and 40gr.Seating about .005 off the lands.
Turns out most groups are 3/4-1" at 100yds but the 40gr Blitzking with 4064 gives 1/4"-3/8" at 100 with 37.5gr of 4064.It's pushing 4,000 fps.
I didn't try at 200yds yet but will.
Don't reallly like that it's that fast but I'm not going to be shooting allot.
Looking for others with same gun and what their findings are.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

I shoot a rem 700 heavy barrel 22-250, stainless synthetic. I use 38 grains of h380 with a 55 grain sierra blitz king. Oal in my rifle is 3.250, it cuts holes at 100 yds, and has accounted for many groundhogs over the years I have owned it. I don't know if this is the info u r looking for, if not please advise.

A 1:14 twist will tend to shoot lighter bullets well.

Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.

39.1 grs of CFE 223 Win brass and cheap Hornady 55gr sp's = 3800 fps and bughole groups in my 700 22/250 sporter. The 55's will kill all kinds of critters big and small as well.
