Thanks again for the response.
Nope. All of the powder from even the slowest powder burns in far less than 20". Unless you are talking about firing rifle rounds from pistol length barrels the powder that gives the best results from a 26" barrel will also be the best from a 16" barrel. Start shooting 22/250 from a 8-10" barrel and it might make a difference.
You will have a small ball at night. It isn't too bad. Faster powder would reduce muzzle blast, but you lose velocity.
Try the 53 gr vmax it's impressive on coyotes and crows. Also has the highest bc that a 12 twist can handle.
Try a 55gr Sierra GameKing #1390 over Varget. All rifles are different but you will probable find an accurate load right around 36.0gr.
You could always try the powder originally developed for the wildcat that became the 22-250, H380.
