    Hello,
    New guy from W. NC. Just got into rifle reloading the past year. I'm loading .223 for range shooting and coyotes, and I'm loading 25-06 for range, coyotes and deer. I hope to carry the 25-06 on a western mule deer/antelope hunt next year.
    Looking forward to learning all I can from the more experienced forum members. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Greg,
    Welcome aboard. I'm just a few hills to the South. Got any GOOD trout waters in your back yard?? LOL

    On your 25-06.....you might want to try to get some Hornady GMX or SST rounds since you don't want to spend big bucks on the Barnes types.

    I found out (in my ELK Gun .338WM) that 225gr MRX was beat out by a 185gr GMX as to MOAs. Still working on that effort (over time & $$$). Good luck.
