Was running some more numbers today for a guy and never thought about this much either.
Now this is factory data so im sure 26" test barrels.
My longest 223 is 20" and my 22-250 is a 26" along with another .22-250 at 22" i think it is.
Goin to be testing some different loads and comparing them soon.

But here is factory data.

Back in the days when I used to hunt groundhogs, I know I was lot more satisfied with the results of 22-250 from a 788 (with I believe a 24" barrel) than a 722 in .222 with a 26" barrel. Not that that's a proper comparision to .223, but a 22-250 is a pretty ideal varmint cartridge in the right rifle(s), IMO.

I Forgot about this thread...
I went with 53gr Nosler Varmageddons in the 22" .22-250 and got them to shoot really good at 3775-3800FPS with CFE223.

This was my load workup. I settled on 38 gr as it shot the best at distance.
