    I think these were called a '.25 Souper' or something like that.

    HTH,

    Correct. That is indeed the 25 Souper.

    A neat cartridge really that failed to catch on given the publicity and writeups accorded the 243 and the 6mm during that time frame.

    Performance is not far behind the 25/06.

    Load data is available in Art Alphin's, "Any Shot You Want."

    Email me if you need data.

    Cheers.

    25 Souper can be made easy from 260 REM but a regular 260 REM can do the same with a better choice of bullet ( better BC and light match bullet for long range varmint )
    and perhaps better resale value and lower cost to built

    good shooting
