I have a Remington ADL 22-250. I had a gunsmisth cut the barrel down to 16 inches and make it into a ultra light carbine. I shot it for the first time today. I was shooting Remington 50 gr JHP I was getting just over 1in groups at 100 yards.
Next I shot Winchester Supream 55gr balistic tips. they didnt ever get on the paper. I found their exit holes and it looks like the bullet was hitting sideways or tumbling.
I'm assuming I wont be able to shoot anything over 55 grs out of this gun because of the 16 in barrel. I dont know the twist rate. I'm going to start handloading. Would a 40 or 45gr shoot better?
Any advice would be great.
