22-250 Sporter Barrel


Adrian P. of North Dakota sent us some photos of his recent Criterion Barrels Inc. 22-250 sporter barrel build purchased from Northland Shooters Supply.

Here are the barrel specs and components Adrian used on his build:

  • 24”- Criterion sporter contour- small shank Savage- 22-250- 12 twist with a beadblast finish
  • NSS squared and trued barrel nut
  • Forster Products headspace gauges
  • Boyds Hardwood Gunstocks

Here is what Adrian had to say about his build:

“Thanks for your help on the components for the 22-250. I shoot a lot of prairie dogs so this will work well. I went through barrel break in and the photo shows shots 9-11 grouped at 0.21″ at 100 yards. The load was 50 grain Hornady Vmax with 36.0 gr. IMR-4064.”
