    25-06 with N165

    Is anyone using N165 for a 25-06. im using a 117 Hornady interlock btsp.
    standard large rifle primer,
    im new to reloading and i got this data out of the Hornady reloading book however no one else suggests this powder???
    any ideas?? ATB

    N165 is certainly an option. RL-22 also looks an option too. I use N165 in my 260 Rem as my main powder. The Lee manual lists a range of Hodgdon powders for the 117 gr bullet.

    These two are worth a look:

    not exactly the same but I used it on the 270
    it was OK but I got much better results on N160 ( very similar to RL22)

    i hope i've cracked it 54gr of N165 1'' group at a 100 paced yards. 5 shot group. with the bullet touching the rifling.
    cheers for the advice matt
