RE: 22-250 range?

Try a box of Remington ammo loaded with 50 grain Hornady V-Max. Those put 5 rounds in a quarter-sized group at 100 yards out of my Savage rifle.

I use QRW rings, Leupold and Warne, on a few rifles with excellent results. Always have retained the zero when removing and returning the scope to the rifle.I think they're one of the best choices.
