I had been looking for load information on the .25-06 AI ever since I changed bullets and went to the Berger VLD 115 Match bullet. I had been using Retumbo but just was not getting all that great of performance from in from a Velocity standpoint. I happened to do some searching on the Reloaders nest and came up with the below info. This was not the top load listed with this bullet powder combination but looked like something I would like to check out. If this load does what this guys says it will it still has 935 Ft/lb of energy at 1000 yards and is moving at 1913.9 fps according to my ballistic program That is incredible. Drops with it sighted in at 200 gives me a 1.05 rise at 100 and 5.1" drop at 300. At 1000 yds it has a 18.2 MOA drop Wind drift at 1000 yds in a 10 MPH full value wind is 5.3 MOA or 60.54"s IF all this is true I might of found my long range Antelope/Deer loading. Big question I would really like to know is just how much pressure is this and what kind of barrel life would a person get. I like my .25-06 AI too much to burn it up too fast.
