My 55 grain sierra spitzer shoot well within an inch group (5) in both 22-250 and 222...so being as compulsive as I can be I choose to switch to a nosler 55 grn ballistic tip using the exact same powder load...748 in the 222 and 4895 in the 22-250...thinking I can now cut the same holes, I fire off a group in a calm day, with no mirage...I cannot get the group into the size of my hand...what in the hell causes that?

I've never got the accuracy from the 55 Nosler compared to the 40 gr. in different 22's. My guess is the twist rate  what gun are you using, does it have a 1x14 twist? Are the Sierra's the BT or flat base, (quessing flat). Perhaps there is still some pitch and yaw in the Noslers, which are longer than a flat base.

It could be the twist rate of your rifles, or it could be any number of factors.  You can't expect bullets from different manufacturers to shoot the same; there's just too many variables.  That's the fun of reloading.  You might change your load slightly and the Noslers will shoot great; or, they may never shoot right for you.  I bought some Barnes Triple Shocks to shoot in my Kimber 22-250 after reading good things about them.  I tried five powders with five different loads and never could put five shots inside a dinner plate.  It would put 55gr Nosler BT's into less than an inch all day long.
