Just got a new Handloader mag in, and of course an article got me going on a new gun. Really looks like an interesting caliber. The writer got speeds of 3542 fps with a 77 gr Matchking and 3162 with a 90 gr VLD. Maybe worth looking at for my first real custom gun.

The 6mm version has a really good following. I can't imagine the 22 being bad. Kinda like the 22/6 PPC and BR. The case design should lend well for accuracy.

The writer said it was very close to the 22-250 AI in case volume and velocity..

The 22-250 and 6mm Rem have always been two of my favorites. Lucky for me I haven't as of yet and I don't think I will get into the Creedmores.

You might also look into a 220Russian. Mine has kicked out 52 grain bullets at up to 4100 FPS accurately with the downside being the cases lengthening too fast. I dropped it down to 3700 FPS and life was good again. I turned the necks on mine but with a different reamer I would not have had to. The 220Russian case is the parent of the 6 PPC.
Gene Beggs came out with a 22 Beggs after my project and it had squarer shoulder angle, which Gene claims cuts down on brass growth.

I’ve got a 22 Creedmoor, neat cartridge, good ballistics, and yeah, a souped up 22-250 with a fast twist barrel. As with the other Creedmoor, accuracy is good and case life seems to be good. I’ve not had it out but one loading session, but I know for sure mine likes Reloader 17 powder. And this is the way to spell it... Creedmoor.

Thanks for the comeback, good to hear from someone that has one. Where did you get your gun made? I found out right off after checking a couple places, that not a lot of people can or are willing to make a gun in this caliber.

I purchased it used for my son to shoot in long range events. Seems to like 88 grain ELDs. Good luck with your build.
