Re: How Do I Know What To Buy? By Jeremy Knepp

Currently, without buying anything strictly for long range hunting, I have mostly Browning BAR's. I love these rifles! They always get it done here. My favorite right now is a BAR chambered in 25-06. I used it last fall to make my two longest shots. We went to Wyoming for the first time and I killed two antelope. One at 250 and the other at 327. It was an awesome trip! I also have a BAR in 7mm and 300 win. I figured one of these will get me by till I can get something made for long range.

Sounds like a winner! Do you hand load? If so, you might be able to really zero those things in. You could start a new long range rifle trend!

Re: How Do I Know What To Buy? By Jeremy Knepp

Right now I only have my dillon press set up for 40sw. When my house is finished being built, hopefully in a week or two, ill be able to get it in there on good level, sturdy bench and start hand loading for my rifles. I'd love to get some awesome accurate loads for my 25-06.

I had one that I used in my dads 25-06. It was 52.8grns of IMR-4831, with a 120 Sierra Game King BTHP, and CCI 200 primer.

That should chrono out at about 2950 or so. Thats a pretty good "anything" load!!!

Im gonna try some 117 grain slugs in my 25-06AI....once I get her up and running....and see what she will do..???

Sounds like a plan. At the time I shot that load, I wasn't doing any chronographing.
