Re: 25-06 Any One???
Sounds like you've got two winners to me. I also shoot the .25-06, mostly for deer. I did some load development with the Sierra 75gr HP for varmints though. Had the chance to head up your way last year, but the groundhogs had stage fright. I loaded from 47.5-51.0 gr of IMR 4064 and CCI BR2's. Velocity averaged from 3322-3611 with 49.5gr (@3543fps) being the most accurate in my rifle (M700 Sendero SF).
I'm currently using 55.5gr of RL22, CCI BR2's behind the 100gr Barnes Triple Shock at just over 3200fps for my deer load. This is an accurate bullet and could penetrate forever and still retain most of its weight. This rifle (previous owner) has produced a 3/16" 3-shot group, once. I haven't tried this load but he swore by it. It is the 100gr Nolser Ballistic Tip ahead of 53gr of IMR4831 and CCI LR primers. Good luck and give me a shout, would love to come up and shoot with ya if possible. Johnny K.
