    I haven't specifically tried their 45gr banded spitzer but i have used the 36gr varmint grenades and the 52gr TSX, both with good results. I have also had very good results with 45gr CTs and Nosler ballistic tips.

    What kind of gun are you shooting?

    You might want to give the CTs a try, they are 'Lubalox' coated- sorta like moly.
    http://nosler.com/index.php?p=3&bullet=10

    The Barnes varmint grenades are designed with fur hunters in mind. The have a small entrance wound, with no exit. I have good luck with them, but anything smaller than a fox gets turned to goo.

    If your rifle likes lighter bullets, which it sounds like it does, give the 36gr ones a try, the heavier ones require a faster twist like 1:12 or 1:10. Most 22-250s are 1:14.

    You may also want to look at the 40gr BlitzKing from Sierra. But if you are looking for more punch and are limited to lighter bullets you are in a tight spot. The Barnes banded spitzer is a good choice. I don't know what the difference between it and the TSX is but the TSX is available in 45grs as well and will hold up for sure, but you are going to have an entrance and exit wound.

    If you are still chasing bullets around your target then it might be time to try a few different powders, Varget is a favorite of mine, H-380 is also the go-to powder for the 22-250.

    What are you hunting?

    My 22-250..

    My Remington Varmint likes 50-55gr. bullets. My hunting load, for groundhogs, and yotes, is a Hornady V-Max 50/55gr. I load the bullets up to about 3500fps. for the proper explosion factor in a varmint. This load will vaporize a 3 gal. water jug, and just leave shards of bullet material in jug-no exit hole-just blows up. I have not opened a groundhog after a center mass hit, but when you shake the carcass, it sounds like a bowl of pasta sloshing around inside??:scrutiny::uhoh:
