22-250 is "THE ONE".
Winchester JHP , 4000 fps. or Winchester Silver Tips, I think about 3800 fps.
Remington 6mm with 55gr. Nosler Balistic tips... 4100+fps. So there!

Actually, out here in the hot, dry desert I had to drop that load down just a tad. They were chrono'ing upwards of 4180's to almost 4200. Just a little TOO hot for my taste (and I like my barrel not totally burned out).

Favorite ground squirrel rifle is a Ruger 77MKII in 25.06 26" blued stainless heavy barrel. Fat Benchrest laminated stock and a 6.5X20 Leupold VXIII whith an elevation turret on it. Shooting 100gr Nos ballistic tips at about 3350 fps. The wind does not affect it much and it will shoot inside a 2" circle at 450 yds.

I just posted that and then thought a minute and went and looked at my Chrono notes. Those 100gr ballistic tips crono at 3185 fps. Don't wanna tell no fish stories here.

Good stuff so far. This keeps up and I just might look to build my own custom hogging rifle. So I was talking to my buddy last night and it looks like we are heading out tomorrow for the day, hunting hogs.
Oh here's another quick question for my .22mag Based on everyones use, what would be the best ammo to buy. I usually just pick up a box of Winchester HP. Anyone have a personal favorite?
