If the 250 watt bulb is a HID or similar type the ballast comes complete with the fixture. The bulb socket is also part of the fixture and comes pre-wired to the socket. To connect the bulb to the fixture all that has to be done is just screw it into the fixture's socket.

NOT PROPERLY Although it may light, it will burn out pre-maturely due to the higher current flow. A ballast and its lamp must always be a proper match in any HID (high intensity discharge) application. The 400 watt rating of your ballast is NOT a maximum rating. It is 400 and only 400.

4 250 mh bulbs 1 1000 watt mh ballast how to wire?

I would wire them together in a parellel circut. all the lights together, white to white black to black then put your ballast to em. it works like that with my 400 watt mh/hps ballast and 2 250 watt hps bulbs. run 2 hps bulbs with 2 mh bulbs if you can, you get better results.
