Not trying to be rude but, the first three post are 8 1/2 years ago (June 2004). The next two are 4 years ago (November 2008). JohnnyK.

    What do you mean 25 Colt?
    I'm pretty sure you don't mean the tiny pistol cartridge from 1908.
    So what then??
    (Genuine question, no diss intended)

    Noticed the 25 wssm brass is just a little hard to find for my 25 wssm Browning.
    To get by, I recently bought 100 243 wssm brass from doghouseoutdoors.

    25 Colt is a Wildcat design. 25 WSSM blown out. Burns powder more efficient, in turn more accurate.

    Please do tell me more.
    Am always looking for something different. Just thought the
    25 Bobcat (25 wsm ) had too short a barrel life for me.
    25 colt wildcat sounds like the one.

    Oh, the joy of ressurecting dead threads.

    Since it's alive I'll toss my .02 in.

    The wssm cals. are notorious for not liking max loads. I shoot a 100 sierra with a start charge of H4895 and it's still around 3100 fps at 1/2 moa. With a top charge of Superformance it'll hit 3300 fps with the sierra at 1 moa. A start charge of h4350 with the 120 speer is its best load at about 1/3 moa at 2900 fps.

    Hmmmm. Not my experience at all.

    I have 2: 25 wssm's so I can't speak for the 22 or 243 wssm.
    Both of mine demand max loads or they will soot up the necks of the brass something awful.
    Both the Winchester and Browning are accurate with many loads but only loads near max will seal up the
    thick neck brass to the chamber.

    How does your brass look with these light loads?
