For over 10 years the 25X.284 win. was my go to Coues, and Mule Deer rifle. FYI Gun Smith cut metal out to acomadate much longer mgazine box. ( short action )
I just built a 25 -284 -8 twist Douglas xx grade air gaged stainless 25 in I love it loading 90 gr Hammer absolutes with a maxl load of rl 19 with a three shot avg vel of 3860 fps using 62 grs back off too 61.2 that still puts me a tad over 3800 fps will be testing it on a cull buck Thanksgiving I think it will be a real good white tail load for 400 yds I did not have too buy any dies just use a .283 bushing in my 6.5 -284 redding dies and my competition 284 win seating die .ooo run out works better than I expected the 25 - 284 is defiantly a over looked wildcat cartridge that performs way above it’s pay grade
