Hi Guys, with the help of my gunsmith I have converted a P17 (M17) action to a 25 06 Remington. The top of the action has been machined flat and Leupold Duel Dovetail mounts with a Leupold VX1 4x12x40 Scope. 25" barrel re-crowned and blued, timney trigger, a hand made Walnut stock with a Anshutz type check rest and a Harris bi-pod. It still has the six shot magazine. I am looking for any comments or load data or suggested projectiles etc Basically any info anyone has to share about this cartridge. It is not a popular round here in New Zealand but from what I have read it will handle any of the game we have. I also want to compete in the local deer stalkers association range shoots.
I am wanting a Varmint round and a deer round. I already have 87gr Sierra Varmints, 90 gr Sierra Blitzkings, 90 gr Sierra Gamekings and 100gr and 117gr Sierra ProHunters. These are what I load and shoot with my .303-25 so it would be good to use them in my 25-06.
I am keen on Long range varminting for Bunnies as we have heaps of them where I live and hunting Ferral Goats, Pigs and deer- Fallow and Reds.
Any info would be much appreciated. Cheers Land Rover
