22-250 Remington Canada|Where To Buy 22-250 Remington In Canada

The .22-250 Remington is a high-velocity, short-action, .22 caliber rifle cartridge primarily used for varmint and small game hunting. It is capable of reaching over 4,000 feet per second. It does find occasional use by women and young children for deer hunting because of its low recoil

The performance of the 22-250 round is what makes it so impressive. It carries a similar grain weight and the same bullet diameter as a 5.56 round.

The .22-250 Remington in 55-grain muzzle velocity is 3,786 feet per second with 1,751 foot-pounds of force on target.

I was comparing that to the 55-grain 5.56 NATO round with a muzzle velocity of 3,260 feet per second and 1,294 feet pounds of force on target.

The higher velocity and power of the 22-250 provide excellent knock-down power and penetration while minimizing the mushroom of the round tip. This helps minimize the damage to the animal when the round passes through it.
