    Have I got the right DATA 25 06 and H4350

    I have been doing some load development for my 25 06 using hodgdon H4350. Using the Hodgdon data I had some great success sierra 100gr and 87gr bullets. Shooting 1/2 and 1/3 inch groups.
    Hodgdon data states powder weight is from 50-54.5 but my new Speer Manuel says 54-58grs for 87gr spitz sp
    My load was 51.7gr h4350 and 87gr sierra
    . That now I am feeling might be a little under powered!

    I know there are differences between manuals but this is quite a lot? What is anyone else using for there max powder weight with this powder?


    Thank you in advance

    I used to use 49gn h4350 with a 100gn ballistic tip, very accurate and bullets often mushroomed and found under offside skin, circa 3100 fps from memory. Stoking it could push another 200fps but never found it necessary. Damage was acceptable.

    That kind of variance is normal.
    Reloading manuals are just guides. They represent what each entity got on a given day, with a given barrel, LOT of powder and bullet.

    You're underpowered? Really? Do you have a chronograph? Or are you, like so many, running blind and fretting over what you might be missing?? And all the while shooting in the .3's and .5's...... ~Muir

    Each load I put over the chronograph obviously Not while punching paper That would be a clever trick!!!
