Re: 1000 yd. .25 Cal.

Tooley told me he only gets the cases that he uses to form his own creations--dont try to get 280rems from him [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

i guess he uses the 8x68 though so you are alright.

    I read about a .257 STW that I bet would make 1K without breaking a sweat.

    I'd imagine that by the time you worked up a good load in the 257STW you would probably have to rebarrel and start over again.
    Just the right cartridge for retirement - if I ever get there. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    I shoot my 25-06 Sako (Regular Hunting Rifle) to a 1000 yds. No problem. Shooting Steel Silouettes. I shoot Seirras 100grMK behind 60.0 of H-1000. Just figure ballistics,dial and Squeeze. Hardest part is the Wind Factor.
    I have two guns, one for the each of ya
