Re: 25-06 Brass

Redmuzzie,

I would loooove to 'find' a rifle in my basement! I just checked, darn, nuthin ..
The 25-06 is rather light on recoil and even if you dont shoot a whole lot is easy to get used to..anyway, I started reloading from factory fired ammo, and seem to get the best results with Rem cases. This strategy worked for me, and the cases are fire formed to 'your' rifle chamber.(if you buy new cases, I suggest Winchester - check midwayusa, sinclair etc).. You really don' t need a whole lot to get started, a couple boxes would do for a while. Like RT2506 said, and I agree yo cant go wrong with the 117-gr SBT, it will flat out get the job done, also the Nosler 115-gr BTip works great too. Both have good BC's . I think speer makes a 120-gr spitzer that also has high BC but have not triedit. Good luck!

    Are you telling us that you have so many guns you can't keep track of all of them?!
