Re: 25-06 ackley

IMR 4831 and 7828 seem to be some of the better powders to use. Also depending on what its panned us is PD and Coyotes the 100 grain Nosler BT is good but for Antelope and Deer you might be missing the boat by passing over the Berget 115. Really great cartridge. Remember to anneal your cases as the trip the shoulder makes can be a bit rough on them. Once there case life is great.

My 25-06 isn't an Ackley, but it sure likes RL17 with 110 and 115 bullets.

RL19 & 85gr Nosler BT is what I used to run out of my 25" gain twist barrel. It loved that load.

Re: 25-06 ackley

My gun is a tight neck chamber and I use 57G of 4831sc under a 100G smk 3366 velocity The rifle is sighted in at 300 yards and a 500 yard shot on a hog is well getting sort of boring. Now The smk is not a very good bullet for varmints but when they shoot groups in the high 2s there hard to pass up.
