    New Berger 25cal 135gn LRHT

    Are you opening up the tips? Sorry if I missed you already mention that. I have some #59 wire bits and I just drilled a couple out..never tried it before and wondering what your process is like. Some of mine end up straight, some are off center and exaggerate the already inconsistent tip.

    25-06 Ackley Improved

    My next build will probably be 25-06ai currently shooting a 1:7 25-06. 110gr SBDIIs are shooting well at 3220 fps. With the BJs, retumbo, n570, and RL26 was getting me in the mid 3100’s without obvious pressure. They were not accurate enough in my barrel for my needs. They all seemed to...

    SOLD/EXPIRED Bushnell LRHS 3-12x44

    3-12x44 LRHS mil/mil 30mm tube. Excellent condition, with box. Has a few scratches on the turret coin slot, and a few minor scratches on body that are hard to see and not coming through in pictures. I do not see any ring marks. The lens are perfect. This is a catch and release for me—mounted...

    Anybody here shooting 25 creed that could help me out with some questions? My velocities are way slow, pressuring out in the low/mid 2700s with LRP brass and h4350. Have some Peterson brass that I had to neck turn way down and some necked down hornady. Have some SRP brass coming to try as well...

    Hammer hunters at low impact velocity?

    Can anybody provide some examples of low impact velocity hammer hunter kills? 1800-2000fps or so? I love hammers and have killed some critters at higher velocity impact but am hesitant to push the limits without seeing others results. I just feel more comfortable with lead at 2000 fps because of...
