Noticed something on Hodgdon website.

I was looking at .22-250Rem data and noticed that the max charge of H380 in every bullet weight is 41gr. Think this this is a misprint? Never seen every bullet weight have the exact same recommended max before. Have you?

22-250 and H380

It's true. not a misprint. I called Hodgdon. I loaded some up and got to 40.5 before I said no more. My best load was 39.0 with a 55gr HPBT
What it really means is your good to go but don't use a compressed load.

Look at the pressures. 40gr bullet = 39,200 CUP. 50gr bullet = 45,300 CUP. 55gr bullet = 50,700 CUP. I've never loaded 22-250, or loaded with H380, but I'll bet 41.0gr is a casefull.
