    Hi i just about to collect my new remmy 700 sps .Had the barrel cut and crowned to 20in. Has anyone got a good starting point and a powder sugestion.I will be using nosler 115g tips.On my old gun I was using reloader 19 53g .But i know it is said you can use a faster powder with a shorter barrel. many thanks woodfordfallow

    thats great mate, i mainly shoot fallow here and a week in scotland hind stalking so they sound a good bet. Atm i'm using Hornady 117btsp. i haven't got any complaints but i do have a lot of faith with anything with Nosler on the box. im planning on loading some 85g for foxing.
    ATB with your 25-06.

    I used vectan TU 7000 in my old shr 25-06 with a 20" barrel it worked very well with the 115grn Noslers. I dont have the data but I used the data from pete Lawman's site.
