Re: 25-06 Reminigton info please

This is the rifle I have been talking about doing the switch-barrel setup on and swapping from .25-06 AI to .280 AI. to my .22 wildcat based on the '06 case...Which should be REALLY nasty. I bet you might even want one for coyotes and stuff up your way. Right now still a design, but once I get it proprietized through Dave Kiff and get my reamers and dies made, I will make a new thread about it.

Re: 25-06 Reminigton info please

That is a nice looking rifle, Hey guess what? My dies arrived today.
I have federal Large magnum match primers, norma brass, Adi Ar 2209 powder and 90gr blitzking, 90gr gameking, 100gr prohunters and 117gr prohunters to try out. A projectile between 100gr and 117gr may be the ticket. But I have the others to play with anyway.

Well, I sure would be interested in seeing what kind of velocities that .22 wildcat produces, but not sure I want to pay the price per shot in barrel life what powder were you thinking?

Already have two 22 cals and I think my coyote rifle of choice will be the 6-284. Good luck with the switch barrel. I was gonna do one a couple years ago but my smith was adamantly against it.

That's strange that your smith would be against it...As long as you torque everything to proper spec everytime, and your proofing marks line-up, I wouldn't see where you could go wrong.

Powder wise, was thinking 7828 SSC, being that it's based on the '06 case. Either that or Varget, maybe Reloder 19.

What do you think?

Yes, barrel life will most likely suffer tremendously. But it oughtta be fun while it lasts!

That smith is an old school kinda guy and I guess he just did not trust his clients to get it right when screwing the barrels on. But yeah, if you index the barrel and action, it should work OK.

I think Varget and 19 would be wayyyyyy too fast. 7828 will probably also be too fast. A 22-06 will be about the same overbore factor as the 7 RUM, so whatever works in a 7 RUM should be a contender for a 22-06. RL33, RL50, H870, N170, etc.

Yeah, it should be fun while it lasts, as long as you don't mind paying about $1 per trigger pull just for the barrel

Re: 25-06 Reminigton info please

Yeah, it's not a .22-06, but it's alot more tweaked than that. It'll be hotter than a .22-06, by a noticeable bit. I designed it around the .224 Berger 90gr VLD for coyotes.

So, Reloder 22, H1000, 25, 33, 50....All those oughtta be good enough to get me started then, right?

I got plenty of 22 and H1000.

Well....I got an old 20" .22-250 heavy barrel that the throat was trashed in, but the rifling looks decent enough to get started, that I'll ream the chamber out, and use for fire-forming.

Then once I get my capacities figured out, and my cases formed, buy a nice Shilen pre-fit short-chamber and let my smith finish it out. Problem is, I'll need a Sendero contour, but it will have to be 26" long, and a 1:7 twist.....That's gonna be hard to find.
