RE: 25-06 performance ?

The 25/06 is one of the magic calibers. It shoots much better than it should. 25/06s tend to be very accurate. It is an excellent choice for caribou and smaller game.

RE: 30-06 load

H4350 is a wonderful 30/06 powder. It works well with 150, 165, and 180 grain bullets. I use H4350 as my 30/06 powder.

Having said that, one of the trully neat things about the 30/06 is it's...

RE: Shocked over diff in 1 grain

If the primer was more central you would see that same affect as using too little powder in a bottleneck case....too much powder ignites causing a massive pressure spike.

IMR 4350 is a good powder. H4350 is my personal favorite for the 06. I prefer the 180 grain bullet (just to be different than Reb). Ballistically, the 165 is the best flying bullet for the 30-06 (so,...
