It was hailed as the fastest comercially available cartridge, allthough some debate remains about that as with all superlative statements. The excellent accuracy and speed of the 204 has even found favour with military style rifles such as the AR-15.

New Norma 22-250 Remington Brass Cases (100)

In Europe the .22-250 is mainly used for roe deer and smaller species like beaver and fox. The cartridge is a very good choice for this kind of hunting, provided you are careful with your bullet placement and the angle of the animal – like always when using small a caliber on a larger species. For roe deer it is recommended to use a heavy bullet to obtain a controlled expansion and a sufficient penetration. Due the higher velocity a good many rifles in .22-250 can handle bullets up to 70 grains well in spite of having a standard twist of 1 in 14 inches, but most rifles will make the best groupings with bullets weighing 55-62 grains. Due to the ratio between caliber and case capacity the .22-250 can sometimes be very sensitive to reload. Small variations in loads and seating depth of the bullet can cause precision to suffer significantly. However, it has a reputation of outstanding precision and is still one of the best choices for varmint hunting.
