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.
