Re: "Effective Range" .25-06

Hey there...

I took 3 or 4 yotes last year with 100gr sierra mk's @ 3050 fps between 700 to 750 yards none of them made it more than 20 yards before piling up...

Since then the gun was rebarrelled to 25-06 ackley imp and is pushing 115gr Berger vld's @ 3340 fps... Shot one last weekend at 680yrds broadside and the bullet passed through both shoulders exiting leaving a hole the size of my fist....
Pretty sure the vld's got at least a few hundred more yards left in 'em but they aren't the most fur friendly.... They also group spectacular, I can get sub 1/2 MOA routinely and have had the odd sub 1/4 MOA groups at 1000 yards

Figure you should be good to go out to at least 700 to 800 with the vld's at your velocity if they shoot well in your rig....


Oh... And like some of the other guys.... I've had my share of misses at those ranges too....
