I couldn't find anything on the forum about it, so Im gonna ask. What is everyones thoughts on the 22 Nosler? Only a barrel swap and a 6.8 magazine. Is it worth the effort ?

As long as there are .22-250s in the world, no.

It's a good option if you desire to shoot heavy bullets from an AR platform.
For example you can run the 75 gr ELD and they fit the magazine unlike a 223 which needs to be single loaded. Also you get a bump in velocity of a couple hundred FPS depending on bullet weight and barrel length. Drawback is single source brass at this point.

I haven't seen an AR 15 in 22-250.

Some of there numbers seem inflated. They do have a fps difference, but I would look at 6.5 Grendel


I thought about a sbr but decided the limited brass and ammo wasn't worth it

I have had 2 of the 22Noslers and 2 of the wildcat version 6.8SPC/22 AKA 22DTi so I have played with it quite as bit and there is no doubt there is an improvement. Now with that being said it up to the individual to decide if it's worth the price for the gain in performance. It's kind of like the ackley debate......most AI's don't gain that much 3-4% but folks go to the trouble all the time for that little gain.

The 22 Nosler is a little hotter and faster round than the 223 Rem. It runs about 200 fps faster, and the case holds about 3-5 grains more powder. For shooters who want faster performance in an AR-15 platform, it may be worth it.

The 22-250 is a longer round and does not fin in an AR-15 platform. It would be based on an AR-10 platform, so it's on a different playing field.

Yes it is. But as long as .223 brass is free, I can't justify the 22 Nosler.

Yep there's the rub... better performance always seems to cost more. cool
