Re: 25-06 any one

[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Hi joe. I'm a new member and I have shot a 25-06 Sako for years at deer,coyotes,antelope,gophers.I've even shot wild boar that are out here running loose. The shot has to be very good,standing within a hundred yds and a head shot only or we do not shoot the pigs.My best and most accurate is a Nosler 115grs bullet and 51.5grs of IMR4831 pwdr. I sight it in 2 inches high @100yds,and then make the adjustments for greater distances as everyone else does.I've shot this gun since 1964 so it feels good everytime I shoot it. Don't give up on your gun,it's a great shooter. RBnull

I shoot a 25/06 with a 27", 10 " twist, #7 contour Hart barrel with 108 gr VLD JLK bullets burning H4831 (long cut), with fed 210GM primers and Norma 270 Win brass. It shoots around 1/2" @ 100 yds and only shot it once @ 1000 yds, 5 shots in 7". Bullets just touch the lands.

Re: 25-06 any one

Dan conzo: what is your velocity and do you find any diff between long and short cut?

Im not having much luck with the 115 nosler blist tips.

1/2" with Sie 100gr matches, but not a reliable 1/2".
