expanding bullets in 25/06

the Sierra 100g spt BT or the nosler 100g Ballistic tip would be two of my first choices. You will be good to 600 with either of them if you do your homework.

Please try the R#25, it is unreal to say the least with the 100's especially!

Good luck!

Roy in Idaho, gun should be here next Friday. I bought in Colorado through a dealer. I expect no problems. Not really sure what you mean by , have you sent it or being lost.

Re: expanding bullets in 25/06

Keith, you are right about RL25. I started using it back when it first came out in my Sendero. I worked up to 59.5 Gr. behind the 120 Nos. Part. for a velocity of 3,304 Av.
I received some flack about this but the load did not show
pressure signs & yes the Rem. brass is soft, I would get 3-4
firings with this load even without those pressure signs.
I will say though that it appears that this is a "fast" barrel.
Kirby converted this to a 25-06AI & now I get 3,250FPS with
the 125 Wildcat with the same powder. Now that the case is
slightly larger & the bullet is slightly heavier I have thought about trying Retumbo, but I may be at the performance peak now, just something different to try.
You will not make peace with the Blue Coats, you are free to go.

Re: expanding bullets in 25/06

I have shot a 25-06 since 1980 and love them.
The 100 - 115gr nos bt will both open well i think.
If you care about fur an accubond might be a little more friendly.
I'm in the process of working up a 110gr accubond load ,win. brass w/a cci 200 primer w/ 53.5gr of imr 4350 at 20k off the lands.Will test seating next.
Glad to hear about the reloader 25 ,heard it before and the 100gr nos bt is my favorite bullet.Thanks for the info Keith!I also enjoy your 7mm STW knowledge.
So far i've tried varget w/ lighter bullets w/ good results.
Also h-4831 / imr 4831 /imr 4350 as stated ,so far i'm the .75" shooter.I guess i should be happy w/ that but i like testing i guess.Mike

Re: Loads for 25-06 sendero

My Sendero liked the 75gr. V-maxs and IMR4064. They shot around 3700fps and under 1/2" 5 shot groups. Shot the barrel out praire dog hunting with this load, and rebarreled to 6.5-06. I do not remimber the exact charge weight, but if you are interested I will look it up in my records.
