Re: 25-06 load in Sako?
I, too, use the Sierra 100 gr MK. My rifle prefers H4350, using the short-cut version.
This will be my 4th year taking antelope with this bullet and I have no complaints. Great pill to buck the wind with.
I'm no longer using the MK for prairie dogs though. The little critters just don't offer enough resistance and the bullet doesn't put them down well enough at long range for my taste. Using a new load for the sage rats with the 75 gr V-Max. Surprisingly accurate out to 500 yards and the terminal ballistics are most impressive. Even a poor hit results in a totally disabled poodle that can be dispatched with a second shot. Seldom does anything get down the hole anymore with a wound.
