My 700 likes the white-box win too. I made a huge mistake when I first started reloading for 22-250. I thought that once fired shells didn't need to have the cases trimmed back. If you're doing the same consider yourself lucky to get 1.5" and lucky that you still have a gun in one piece. The 22-250 is generally a pretty darn forgiving reloaders cartridge so I don't know what it could be besides something in case prep. I still haven't had luck with 60gr partitions, but that's likely because I've only tried one powder and the partitions are probably just too long for my guns 1-14" twist. There are alot of more knowledgeable guys on here, they'll be able to point out other problem areas with the 22-250. Good luck

In the last 10 years,I've had the best luck with IMR4064,in the 22-250.Also,the Remington bullets are not going to group much better than what you have gotten!!!!Try Hornady 55 V max and see what happens?

35 Gr of RL-15 with your 55 gr bullets. This is a pretty light pressure load, but be careful.

I would start with them seated .010" off of the lands.

Hard to beet 38gr of H380 behind a 55gr bullet! I've got 2 Rem 22-250's & that's the best load in both.

Are you cleaning the barrel often? a new barrel can be rough and hold copper quickly

Fishead when you say 22-250 coyote are you talking about a
winchester coyote? I have the coyote lite in 22-250 and it loves 50-55grn
and varget. It shoots the Barnes 53 trx real well but they are a little$$$

You might try polishing the bore well with J-B Paste after a good cleaning, and also 45 or 50 grain bullets might shoot better than 55 grain or heavier slugs in that 1/14" twist......
