All 3 of my .22BR's love AA2015 with a 40 gr.V-max.

I would try different bullets. All the 22br I have had or seen love Varget. Varget and RE15 are very similar powders. In 12 twist barrel I have had good luck with 52gr bullets 30gr varget at 7 1/2 rem primers. I have a Douglas 14 twist barrel in a Savage varmint contour, .250 neck that will spit 5 shot 100 yard groups in the .2 area all day long, with a 52 gr bullet on top of varget.
I have a friend that has a 8 twist Douglas barrel that has over 4000 rounds down the tube, and it will spit groups just like mine will. The impressive thing is the barrel has been tortured in dog towns. Looking down the barrel with a bore scope shows that the barrel has nothing for the first 4 inches of the barrel. Same combo 52 gr bullet varget, and 7 1/2 primers.
Don't give up on it, I would say you have the right powder. If you want some super speed out of it try 4895. I would say that the barrel just don't like the bullets your feeding it.

82boy, Yes I need to switch bullets. The Nosler's when seated have a O.A.L. variance of .004", My Match Kings measure much better, I will look around for some 52's
