Looking for loads using 120 Nosler Partition in a Win Mod 70 25-06. Will use on whitetails in Georgia out to 300 yds.

Re: 25-06 Loads

i'm using 100grain matchkings moly'd with 56grains of h4831sc.

it's only a 24" barrel making 3000fps, but it knocks the red stags down no worries. red stags weigh around 18stone....

I worked up to the max load in the Nosler #4 book with I-4831. It shot around 3/4"-1" @3050fps.

My 25-06 likes 50.0 grains of H4350 with 120 grain bullets and Federal 210 primers for MOA to 300 yards.

Re: 25-06 Loads

I have had several 25 caliber firearms, and would like to offer a suggestion. 99% of 25-06's have a 1 in 10" twist, and with a 25-06, you don't have velocity to get a bullet weighing over 100 grains to stabilize very well. Yes, some can get the 115/120 grain stuff to group, but you will have better accuracy with a 100gr bullet and some 4831. If you go to a 257 weatherby or 257 stw, this is no longer a problem. Just my 2 cents.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, who's face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt

My 25-06 REM 700 Sendero likes about 60 GR Retumbo and a 115 GR Partiton. In the 1/2 MOA range.

The 85 and 100 BT shoot great with H4831 SC.

Re: 25-06 Loads

I haven't had the best of luck with the 115gr in my .25-06 Sendero SF. I have only tried them once and have not shot anything over that weight yet.
I am currently using the 100gr Barnes Triple-Shock with 55.5gr of RL22 and 9.5M primers. Accuracy and terminal performance is mind boggling. Johnny K.
