Re: anyone else use a 25X47 for hunting

This has me highly intrigued. I was seriously considering the 250 Savage or 257 Roberts AI for my sons first dear rifle. But I'm thinking this is the ticket for a neat little beginner round with some snot and not a lot of recoil. Stick an 85 grain bullet or something of that nature.

Re: anyone else use a 25X47 for hunting

i have 2 guns in this chambering and i use an 80 gr TTSX in 1 and a 100 gr noz patition in the other. both work very well. also with the 2 different loads it makes it easy not mixing them up for each gun. you will never regret picking this round for a youth's 1st gun for hunting deer size game. it is no different then any other rifle in that you still need a well placed round to do the job right the 1st time.
i do not know of any of the bigger gun makers chambering this in any of there off the shelf rifles. so you would need to start with say a rem model 7 and rebarrel and chamber it. something any good gunsmith could do for you. if you need the name of a gunsmith i know could do this for you at a good price i can send this info to you in a PM. if price is not that big of a deal you could also call melvin at ultra light arms
as he built my 2nd rifle chambered in this round. its a ultra light arms model 20S single shot. i really like to hunt with this gun . it is only 5lbs 1.5 oz. turn key with scope.

If I do it, it will be done by me. I have gotten pretty good with building off of Savage actions. I would just get a short action and go that route. They are easy to rebarrel. Thanks for the thread though. The bigger problem would be a reamer.

Just for reference, the 250Sav(or a 25x47L), are not ballistic twins to this 25-222.
The 250Sav holds greater capacity, with it's .473 casehead/06 based case.
The 204/222 caseheads are smaller at .378.
