Killed a red the 2 days ago with 50 gr v-max out of my .22-250 at 25 yards and it didn't come out. Killed 2 coyotes this morning at 100 and 150 and yikes! Will be stitching for awhile today. Time to go back to ballistic silvertips.

Good shooting. FYI, the A-Max's perform similarly. It's all about the terminal velocity. If the speed is way up they won't exit however when it drops it gets real ugly. What's the twist of your barrel? If it will stabilize the Sierra 65 gr. Game King it might be a better choice. I hit two Reds with the .30 cal. 110 gr. V-Max and they will require a lot of thread to repair. I use the 155 and 168 gr. A-Max for chucking and have some very graphic pictures!

Its a 1:12 so im thinking 55 grain is about as heavy as i can go.

29va, below was copied from the 6mmBR site and its for the .223 however you will drive them faster in your .22-250 which is in your favor when it comes to stabilization. You shouldn't have any problems with the Game King because it is a hunting bullet and shorter than a match bullet. This all assumes you reload. I have a 1 in 9" twist .223 and it's not suppose to shoot the 75 gr. A-Max according to the Miller formula (for stabilization calculations) however it does extremely well. That being said you won't know until you try them.

Twist Rates
The .223 Rem shoots a wide range of bullets very effectively, from 35gr flat-based varmint bullets, to ultra-long 90gr VLDs. However, you'll need the right twist rate for your choice of bullet. For max velocity and accuracy with the lightest bullets, a 1:14" twist may be ideal. More versatile is a 1:12" twist that will allow you to shoot the popular 60-64 grain match bullets. (However, a 1:9" twist is needed for the steel-core 62gr bullet used in the M855 military loads, because that bullet is as long as most 70-grainers.) For normal lead-core jacketed bullets, a 1:9" twist will let you shoot up to 73gr bullets. Since most .223 Rem shooters prefer bullets in the 50-73gr range, a good "do-it-all" solution is a 9-twist, unless you're a Highpower competitor.
