Re: Criterion / Savage build in 25-06

No I have not shot out a barrel in any of my 25-06. The only one that I have kept for a looooooog time is my custom Shilen barreled Rem 700 that I have had about 17 years. I don't just go to the range and shoot it a lot. It is a hunting rifle. If you don't shoot it hot or just go out and shoot it a bunch just to be shooting it they will last you a long time. About any bullet you use will not be fur friendly from a 25-06. The 87 gr Sierra is a BOMB. I have shot it some for ground hogs and it scatters pieces.

I finally got to stretch out to 500 yards on the new build. You can see its a little windy with the horizontal spread, but overall its shooting alright.

Vertical spread ended up being about 2.25 inches at 500 yards.

I used this data to validate my trajectory using the ballistics calculator on the site and it seems to be dead on now.
Time to go out and start having some real fun!

I don't have a 25-06 but I use IMR 4350 and H 4350 for my .260 Remington loads. The H 4350 is more temp stable by a wide margin in my estimation but the IMR 4350 is more accurate out of my rifle. Go figure.
