    Hi,
    I wonder if some of you guys can help me. I am trying to find a good flat shooting load for the 22-250 for shooting foxes at around 200 - 250 yards.
    I am using 55 grain Hornady V Max BT bullets and Hornady Varget Powder and CCI Primers.
    Has anybody run any trials on this configuration?

    I think you'll find the V-Max/Varget combo to be a good one. I load
    .223, .22-250 and .243 all with Varget. I have loaded the 55 grain V-Max with 36.0 grains of Varget in .22-250 and they are just a TAD on the warm side. Not sure if that's any help, but thought I'd throw it out there.
