    75 looks and not comment 1. I sure appreciate the assistance...I mean I know I can hunt down a good forming load but if someone had one at hand Id use what they had recommended....had they recommended any at all.

    What goes around comes around boys!!

    Would it have been helpful to read 75 responses saying " no sorry I can't help you, I thought you were listing a good load for others to use"

    Nobody cares if you respond or not. Obviously nobody has an answer for you.

    I use 100the grain sierra boat tails and imr 4064. Seat the bullets to jam pretty tight in the lands to prevent too much stretching in the base of the case. Pm me and i can look up the charge weight. Pretty sure id was max rate for the standard 25-06.

    Mucho appreciated sir.! A gentleman and a scholar...well....a gentleman at least....

    I figured a standard 25-06 loading but just wasnt sure......never have fire formed before, but I do know I want the casings blown out fully to get the shoulder correct.

    Again...much appreciated

    I anneal the shoulder area first, then I always use the heaviest bullet (so I can reach the lands) and the lightest powder charge...seems to work pretty well.
    Good luck!
