Re: 25-06 any one

Velocity with above load and 54 gr H4831 is approximately 3160 fps. I haven't used H4831 SC yet. The drop with above load was 242" @ 1022 yds from a 200 yd zero. I also shot on the same day the 117 Sierra B.T. Spitzer which dropped 310" @ 1022 yds. This load was the same except with 52 gr H4831 seated just touching lands. This load didn't shoot that good @ 1022 yds but shoots real good @ 100 yds better than the 108 VLDs. I have the 115 Nosler Ballistic Tips but haven't shot them yet but their length is within .010" of the 117 Sierra B.T. Spitzer from base to orgive. I know some people getting good accuracy from 110 gr Fowler FB, but I haven't tried them.

Re: 25-06 any one

Are you intending to use your .25-06 for 1000 yard competitions, P-D/Varmints at long range, or Big Game?

My #5 Hart barreled, Reminton 700 action, .25-06 shoots Nosler's 100gr. BT
best (.25"-.5" reliably) over H-4831. That load combination has taken more Whitetails Does on our ranch in the past 15 years doing culling/herd control than 10 typical hunters combined will kill in a lifetime). At distances of 40-450 yards, with the great majority being head and neck shots, the deer expire RIGHT NOW.

I've not shot my .25-06 at 1000 yards, but expect it'd do just fine in a Sporter Class. Those 100 gr. Nosler BT's are something to behold.

I have a Sako 25 AI 26"barrel and use IMR4831.I had to play with the seeting depth I'll have to check my notes for the depth but I was getting 1/2" groups at 300yds..Don't give up just get more bullets and powder
