My 1:8 twist 22-250 is on its way. Wanting to start with the 75gr ELD-M.

Some guys on the Campfire are getting 3300FPS and good accuracy, but they are using R17 and R26. I know nothing about R26, but I don't want to use R17.

Any powder recommendations? To be 3200 or north would be awesome, but accuracy is king.

26 is very solid and temp stable. Not sure how they are getting enough in the case for those speeds though as it's pretty slow burning.

I'm sure fireman will be along in a bit he has a fast twist 22-250.

I like reloader 26 in the 22-243 and that is an easy velocity to get with it and a couple fps more. There are others reporting 3500fps from a 22 Creedmoor on here. But with both of those you have more case capacity than the 22-250.
