25-06 reload info

I was looking at my Nosler manual 6 and found a load for a 25-06 that interested me. Has anyone tries this load 57.5 gr of Retumbo and either a 120 or a 115 gr bullet? Says it will be cooking 3175 fps. then with a 110 gr, it will be going 3267 fps. Sounds fast but is it accurate and will have to try in my gun but want to know if anyone else uses the same load.

Re: 25-06 reload info

Hello, i been a lurker here for a long time and supose i should start posting sooner or later. I have not used retumbo yet , my fave in my 06 is 100 gr nosler b-tips and rl 19 and if memory serves me right i use 52.5 gr. I have tried rl22 as well as a couple of others and also 115 gr b tips as well but my particular rifle likes the 100 gr. Have now switched to sierra match kings and game kings just to try somethin different but i think my rifle prefers nosler. The above load has given me 5 shot groups of .384" @ 100 yards.I say give the retumbo a try, if your like me i change things up all the time just to see if i can gain a lil more out of it.

Re: 25-06 reload info

WELCOME ABOARD!!! I have been playing around like that with my .270 Win . I have RL19 and H4350 and 4831 SC all have their certain load for my guns but I have never tried the Retombo. I see some loads for the .270 using it so I will get some. I have been looking at a load with 110 accubonds and the 100 gr b tips and 115 gr b tips. Have you had any bad experience with the nosler b tips? I've head good and bad. I picked up some the other day I about fell over when I looked and they ran 16.95 for a box about 10 bucks cheaper than the part. and acc, bonds. Hope to see more posts from you. I have gained alot of knowledge just reading and asking questions.

No problems at all i have shot prolly 1500 noslers so far but the cost is why i am trying the sierra's however when they are gone im goin back to the noslers cause the rifles i have now prefer them.

I'm a big fan of Retumbo in the 25-06 and I even use it with 100 grain bullets. It provides super accurate performance in my Ruger #1V.

Re: 25-06 reload info

I have a Mossberg 4x4 25-06 and have been using a max. load of 51 grains of IMR 4350 behind a Nosler 100 gr. Bt,and at 100 yards I can lay a quarter over a 3 shot group. I don't know if you have any IMR 4350,but if you do you might give it a try.
