I have been working up loads for my 25-06 now for a few weeks and am curious about some things. According to my load manuals and my data my loads should be in the range of 3200-3300 fps. Now, using 2 different chrono's at the range the best I've seen so far is 2980 fps. I can't figure out why I'm almost 300 fps off???? I am using the exact loads as in the manuals including brass manufacturer. I even bought some scale weights to verify my 2 scales were accurate. Another curiousity is that the only thing I shoot is paper, except i will be doing my first coyote hunt this spring and the accuracy right now on 3 particular loads is amazing. Will trying to move velocity up improve the accuracy even more? I guess the reason I ask is because right now I'm comfortable with the loads I'm using and am wondering if I should even bother trying to bump them up.
