Now I see back in 2009 that Monkey Spanker recommends the Nosler 100 grain B/T in the 25-06:-
Hmmm not sure I can get Vec tan around here but will enquire. Reloader 19 yes but had to switch to magnum primers with it as was getting delayed ignition in the 25-06 with the particular load being tried.I use a 25.06 all the time - mainly cos It's my only deer rilfe!
I only ever use 100 grain Nostlers with 50 grains of Vectan 7000, or reloader 19 powder. I have just tried using Nostler partitions which were Ok but didn't seem to drop deer on the spot like the Ballistic Tips do. They were not as accurate either. I have shot both sexes of all 6 deer in the uk with it now, including huge 'Lowland Red' stags. Seems to work fine for me!
Now has anyone any experience of using these Sierra 100 grain bullets on Deer in the UK. At the moment I am using H4831 powder and it shows promise will be testing my theory about the extra mod weight on end of barrel later once a load a few more to try.
But it seems I can get these bullets locally and the price is not too bad I did get a load developed with the Speer 120 grain flat based bullets but it appears that Speer have dropped these for their new super line up So am searching for a new bullet/load combination.
