The effective range of the .22/250 (and of ANY caliber) is determined in large part by the skill of the shooter, and the type of target.
A shooter with a decent level of skill using a .22/250 would be able to hit a basketball at 325yds. on a not-too-windy day. An expert rifleman can stretch that distance out to 500yds. or so.
The .22/250 was designed for varmints - prairie dogs, jack-rabbits, crows, woodchucks, foxes, coyotes and similar sized animals.
In the hands of a good rifleman who is also an experienced game shot, it is quite capable of killing deer out to 300yds. or a but farther.
