25-06 varget 75 gr v-max

Wondering if any of you have used this combo with good results and what speeds. Will be used for coyotes, p-dogs. I will be shooting out of a savage 10 fcp-k 1/10 twist 24in barrel. Thanks in advance

I couldn't ever get them to shoot well out of my rem 700 so I just went to a larger bullet. Let us know how it works out for you.

Re: 25-06 varget 75 gr v-max

As much as I wanted the Savage Axis and old J action varmint to shoot the heavier bullets it still prefers the 75Vmax with about any powder....Varget worked but the accuracy load(47.8 grains Varget per Sierra's manual) was the slowest of all powders tried. Putting in more Varget just made the group get bigger!!
Data 85 and Hunter gave the best groups/velocity

Re: 25-06 varget 75 gr v-max

I've been shooting this combo for about 6 years. I load 48.5 grains of Varget behind the 75gr V-Max. Shoots in the .3's average over that time frame, and longest kill on a prairie dog with this combo was 657 yards. Velocity out of my gun is right at 3,550 fps.

Re: 25-06 varget 75 gr v-max

I appreciate all of the replies. Ive got a few loads worked up now from 46 to 49.5 grains. Havent shot any yet due to the fact that i walked into the gunsmith shop and seen a 204 that i couldnt live without. Hopefully i will do some shooting tomorrow to see how they shoot.

49.7gr of varget -straight out of the Lee book -20K off the lands.

This load/bullet is a coyote destroyer and has made Idaho ground squirrels disappear.
It would also do well on small deer/antelope at mid range.
