250TEZ measures .2505?? Mine measure .499 I have to knurl them up some to shoot sabot less in macgowen


Mine run .449 as well. I can shoot them unknurled, but a slight knurl seats them tighter on the charge.

I've seen similar groups out of several Pacs and Macs with the 250TEZ and that load.

Great trigger work!

My bad, the 250 TEZ measures .4505 with both my L.S. Starrett 0-1 micrometer and my digital calipers. They are advertised at .451 but I have found they run about .0005 smaller. I have some 300 Expanders that measure the same. I have to drive them down sometimes. If I knurled them, they wouldn't go. For now, they are fitting tight straight from the pack.
Some people are running them thru a .449 die and knurling them back up to size.
After some more research, I too have seen similar groups, but I am still proud of it. In the next range session, I am raising the charge to 10/60 to net 2800fps. When my sizing die is complete, I want to size some .458 projectiles with better BC's like the BO.

Are yours new stock? I've had mine 3 or for years and mic-ed them all and don't have any that measure that big.

If they are running bigger now I may be able to run them straight down my Mac without knurling, that would be nice.

The ones I got from Luke a month ago are .449.. The Match hunters I got at the same time are .4505 and fit perfect.

I will borrow another micrometer from work tonight and report back the measurements. I am not sure if the package has a date code. I haven't slugged my barrel but it is supposed to be .451 on the lands and .458 in the grooves. I have resized hornaday 250 ftx thru my .450 die and they came out.451. They would have to be hammered in.

I measured the 250TEZ's with another micrometer. They measured .4505 like the Expanders I have. The Expanders were purchased in 2012 and the 250tez's were purchased last week from Midsouth.

Today's trip tp the range yielded good results. Increased the load to 10/60 4759/H4198 2777 fps .This is more what I was looking for so that I can shoot them at longer ranges. I ran the bullets thru an rcbs .450" sizing die and reduced them from .4505" to .4503" which made them load without driving them down.
