25-06 Rem, Remington Sendero
Nosler Custom Brass
CCI BR2
Sierra 90gr BlitzKing
100 yards, 5 shots from bench with sand bags
IMR4831, 54.5 grs
I didn't even have to do load work-up. I will take this and use the saved powder to kill groundhogs.
I don't even have to change my windage and elevation.

That's a staple in the middle of the bull.

    Congrats on a great group. What does it measure? That is what everyone hopes for when going to the range, but few achieve. If it were mine, I would frame it, but only after showing it to all my shooting friends.

    .30 aprox center to edge. could be tighter but with the powder situation and killing to be done, it will do.[8D]

    The hodgdon website has that at @3200 fps out of a 24" barrel.

    That group looks like varmint medicine, for sure.

    Nice Group... GREAT Recipe !

    The more I read 'bout the 25-06... The more I get interested in it... [:p]

    I'm a real fan of the 30-06... The 25-06 would be a natural progression for me.

    Great group. Almost 30 years ago I bought a Ruger No. 1-V in .25-06. It shot 3" groups at 100 yards with factory loads. I started working up loads for it, and found 2 different loads that would shoot groups as low as .25. One was with a 75 gr. bullet at 3600 fps, and the other was with a Speer 100 gr. I called that rifle AT&T because you could "Reach out and touch someone" with it.

    The .25-06 is a flat shooting rifle. Yours should be a great varmint gun.

    I have some H4831sc. Do you know if this powder can be substituted for the IMR?

    Not weight for weight, no. According to burn rate charts, H is somewhat slower than IMR.

    Go to the Hodgdon website for better info.

    The numbers are close, but not identical.

    Looks like your group is off by about 1/64th of an inch. :)

    That is one heck of a load that you came up with. That is a varmint load for sure. I am going to put that one in my reloading book and try it in my 25-06. Thanks for posting it.

    That was your group with no work up? Wow, imagine what it could be if you tuned it. Great job!

    I tried some with bullet seating depth, but like a lot of guys I was trying to conserve components for when it mattered. This next varmint season I will be stocked up on the 90 grainers and IMR4891. When the SHTF with ammo and reloading components I was laying in a hospital bed for four months, and to be quite honest I did not care that I was low on some stuff[:D]

    What is the kick on that caliber??? I am very recoil sensitive. What kind of game can you use it on???? Oakie

    It's defiantly not made for high volume varmint shooting. I would think just about anyone can shoot the 25-06 with ease. As for game I know several guys that use it for PA bear, and I would think it would work on elk with a good Barnes or bonded type bullet in the 110-120 range. The 25-06 Remington and the 243 Winchester are two of the best all-a-rounders ever made.
