Re: First victim of my new .25-06

Bowhunter57,
I received the strips in the mail today...THANKS!
I now owe you some good photos and videos of the chucks that fall prey to my sexy 06 700 sendero SF2.

I hope the 25-06 load data I sent you helps you get some good ideas on other loads, I dont think your 85 grain load needs any help at all.

Here is one I shot at 200 yards, with an 87 grain Speer TNT, using 58 grains of H4831SC - it was an accurate load right off the bat, but when I tuned in the seating depth, and used some Accuracy Restorer the night before I shot this target - BAMM
5 shots through 1 hole at 200 yards
OH NO, I cant post the photo.....
How do I attach a PDF?

Thank you so much for the cloth, I'll shoot a pic of the finished poroduct (and what it produces.....).
Mike

    I used to kill alot of ground hogs working on farms, 14 lbs ground hog is a legit kill! Nice job!

    It was only 110 yards, which isn't much of a test for the .25-06, but the g-hog was very dead. I love this rifle and caliber! There will be plenty of other kills.

    Good hunting, Bowhunter57
