    3400 sounds a little optimistic to me! I can buy 2 vanguards for the price of 1 sendero! Both mine shoot sub moa

    you either have a faulty chrono or are loading to a pressure level so high you sure wouldnt get me to pull the trigger on that bomb! Even 3200 with that same bullet is pushing it using a recipe out of a loading manual.

    3400 does sound high. I to have owned both both great rounds. That being said the Roy is much. better IMO. Yes more expensive to shoot, but so what. I bought it for the performance no other reason. Ite not something I put lots of rounds through. If it was my only rifle i would w..ant the 25-06. Both are awsome rounds cant believe people get fighting mad about it.

    Here we go.... The chrony is not faulty and the load is quite safe. I have fired a lot of those rounds and it's just fine. Took a nice buck antelope with one too and as far as I know there are no recopies for that load in any manual.

    Not sure about the purpose of your comment, but I'm a big Vanguard fan as far as factory rifles go. I bought my Sendero used for a very good price and have shot a lot of sub 1/2 MOA groups from it.

    3400 is very high compared to most other loads in the 25-06. It's also out of a 26" barrel. As for which one is better... I guess it depends ones perspective. And I agree, not worth fighting over.
