2 options, really without spending too much on actual custom made cases.
1) Forming the cases from 25-06 to improved (I am assuming this is Ackley Improved), using dies.
2) Fire-Forming, dont tell you r fried to do this right away but i believe if the trend follows from the 30-06 improved is grab to regular 25-06 and start shooting it in the gun, the cases will expand to fit the new chamber. Or take new 25-06 brass and take a reduced load and instead of putting a bullet in there place cotton and then fire. This is all theory because i dont own any wildcats to do this for
