    I love .25 calibers. I built my first 25-06 back in the late 60's, way before it was offered as a factory cartridge. I just picked up a used Weatherby Mark V .257 Wby Mag. I am really excited to see what I can work up for it. I've probably shot 50 deer, 40 antelope and some feral hogs with my 25-06, it is a wonderful rifle. It's an older Ruger M77 tang safety with a 4 x 14 Leupold VXIII. Been shooting it for 35 years and never done anything to it except glass bed the action, shoot it and keep it clean!

    The 25-06 is a great round, and the 110 gr. Nosler Accubond would be an excellent bullet in it. In my wife's 25-06 I am using 120 gr. Nosler Partitions. That rifle and bullet has killed two elk, antelope, and deer. I am using IMR4350, but H4831SC would be a great powder also.

    I'm still playing with the 110 gr. Accubond. I have not shot it enough yet. With the 120 gr. Partition I am using Winchester brass, Federal 210 primers, and 49.0 grs. of IMR4350. In the 22" barrel on the wife's 25-06 it chronographs right at 3000 fps. This load shot so well that I never messed with any other powders with the 120 at least.

    OK,I went out this afternoon and fired a few new cases with trial loads in them. This is a 3 shot group of 110gr AccuBonds over some H4831 SC I wanted to play with. I like it! Considering the wind we had this afternoon I'm quite pleased.

    I thought of another question. Do any of you recommend a bullet for the rate of twist in your rifling? My .25-06 is 1:10". Or does this really matter unless your a long range precision shooter?

    1:10 is pretty much standard for the 25-Otter. You should be good to go with most pills from 85gr to 120gr. Provided they aren't excessivly long designs. i.e. Barnes monolithics and the VLD Bergers. It's actually the length of the bullet that causes the most problems with twist rate.
