25-06 Remington / Reloading:
Written by: Kim Lockhart, Copyright.

25-06 Remington Centerfire Rifle Cartridge:
 The popular 25-06 Remington centerfire rifle cartridge is a commercial, rimless, bottleneck cartridge case design that is loaded commercially (factory produced ammunition) or reloaded by individual handloaders with various combinations of primer, powder and .257" diameter bullets. Handloaders can calculate the kinetic energies of their handloads with the use of these formulas.

25-06 Remington Reloading Specifications:

Bullet Diameter - .257".
Primer Size - Large Rifle / .210" Diameter.
Case Neck Diameter - .290".
Case Shoulder Diameter - .441".
Case Base Diameter - .471".
Case Rim Diameter - .473".
Minimum Case Length - 2.484" / Trimmed.
Maximum Case Length - 2.494" / Stretched.
Minimum Cartridge Overall Loaded Length - 3.010".
Maximum Cartridge Overall Loaded Length - 3.250".

25-06 Remington Reloading Data:
 For the Deer and Varmint hunter hand-loading or reloading his or her own 25-06 Remington ammunition, Western Powders, Accurate Magpro rifle powder does an impressive job of launching 100 grain .257" diameter bullets at high velocity. Accurates online reloading data shows that a 100 grain .257" diameter Nosler Ballistic-Tip bullet using 54.6 grains of Accurate Magpro powder can be driven to a velocity of 3,018 feet per second loaded at a maximum cartridge overall length of 3.170" in the 25-06 Remington. This load does not top out until the 100 grain bullet is at 3,296 feet per second at a chamber pressure of 62,150 PSI. For the 100 grain bullet reload if you sighted your 25-06 Remington hunting rifle in dead on at 235 yards it would only be 2 inches high at 150 yards and only 3.8 inches low at 300 yards which would be an excellent deer and varmint load.
