    25-06 Deer Load

    Enquiring for a friend with a 25-06 who's looking for a proven deer (mainly fallow) bullet / powder combination to reload which will drop deer quickly with acceptable carcass damage when heart / lung shot.
    Thanks in anticipation.

    I use 50 grains of IMR 4831 behind a 115 grain 'Combined Technology' Ballistic silvertip head.

    Great knockdown with minimal damage considering it is a BT. 49 grains of IMR 4350 will give similar results. It's a great bullet head which I have now shot small Muntjac up to Lowland red stags with, all with no problems. I would avoid 100 grain Nostler BT's which I used to use The meat damage is horrendous!

    55g R22, CCI Mag, 100g Barnes TSX = 3102fps - excellent on Deer.


    57g R22, CCI Mag, 100g Speer BT = 3213fps, in my rifle same point of impact but don't use it for deer.

    Watch the jelen mike norris video on youtube, good load there for 100gn ballistic tips, kills well.
