  Max for a .223 WSSM is 4300 w/40gr according to Hodgdon. Even if he is using a REALLY light bullet would it stabilize with a std twist?

 Okay, I was thinking .223 Rem.
 
 I didn't think the .223 WSSM was that fast though. DANG!  That's moving!

Can that even be done with a 22-250???  That sounds awful fast for a 223.

  Hodgdon shows both the Swift and .22-250 at just over 4200.

 That is a great site, the safari pics and videos are amazing, but those guys are NUTZ.
 
I don't think I could ever trust the loading data on that site.
 
 Check out the Chimp- bitten guy in the one photo, in light of the recent chimp attack stories.
 
Haven't been there for a long time, hope it's still there.

I'm only getting 4,150 with varget and a 36 gr. Varmint Grenade from a .22-250.  Doing 200 fps more with a .223 is pretty extreme unless it's with an un-bulleted coper gas check!

Alliant listed a 40 gr in the 223 at close to 4000, but that was in a WSSM.  In the 223 Rem, I could find anything that close.

Edited to correct information.  Sorry!

Have reloaded the .22-250 for too many years.  With ST, throwing the BS flag.
