    My dad is getting himself a .22-250 in the near future, with an intended purpose of blasting coyotes. Well, I saw where Barnes is making a new varmint round, the 'varmint grenade', that is supposed to really turn'em inside-out. I was going to get him some of these for Xmas to try out, but, they aren't offered in .22-250.

    This got me thinking; A guy could probably make them if he had a reloading setup. Well, I don't have one yet, so there goes that idea. Next idea was, I wonder if there's any trustworthy company out there that makes custom ammo to your specs.

    So, are there any companys like that? Say a guy wants:

    -.22cal 50gr Barnes Varmint Grenade
    -.22-250 brass of some sort
    -XXX brand of powder
    -XXX primer
    -XXX grains of powder
    -etc.

    Anything like that out there?

    What rifle is he getting?
    This will matter due to pressures, twist rate, barrel length, etc.
    You can't just pick a bullet and a particular load data and expect it to be accurate in any rifle.

    BTW - Varmint Grenade bullets are also offered in 36-grain .224-inch and 62-grain .243-inch sizes.
    They’re available factory-loaded in .223 and .22-250 Black Hills ammunition.



    edit: They only offer it in a 36gr until sometime next year

    edit #2: After browsing the barnes site for the last 9 minutes I found this at the bottom of a page::

    He's not sure yet. He shot my Savage 93r17 and fell in love with the trigger, so now he wants some model of Savage in .22-250.

    Oh, and I didn't realize Black Hills used that bullet.

    As for load data, I hadn't gotten that far. I was mostly wondering if anyone did it before worrying about the details. lol

    And A+ on your search skills. I couldn't find anything w/ Google.

    Thanks :wavey:
