Re: 25-06 long range load
DAMN!!!...Donham--i was thinkingthe same thing. I know i wouldnt be caught firing that gun. Im happy with 3000 out of my 24" tube 700SS DM. I could see 3200 tops with a 26" tube but you gotta be blowin 70,000psi.
How long do your cases last remington_25-06?
get any primer leakage?
i would only expect that from a 26" 257 weatherby.
I hear ya, thr 257 Wea can'ty even safly get 3400 fps from a 115...
On the other hand you can go up in powder charge somewhat, the manuals do kind of list most stuff a little under to be on the safe side for liability issues...
I have shot 85 Noslers at 3705 fps, with no pressure signs, or case stress..
now 115's at 3400 is pretty warm...
About the most I have heard is 3200-3250 fps case life is mediocore... and 3300 fps was a hot hot load.....
I have heard of 3400-3500 fps from 100 out of the 25-06.. hot loads...
I tend to used to like speeds and power... but I seem to have settled down to accept what I have... I don't have a 257 Weatherby, and don't needs the barrel burning powder capacity of a 300 win mag just to get 100 fps more... no animal on earth is going to notice a 25-06 from a 257 Weatherby both with
26 inch tubes.. yet the 257 burns like 20 grains more powder
