Thread: .25-06 factory ammo

    .25-06 factory ammo

    Why is this like unicorn horn? I've recently bought a Sako 85 in .25-06 from a good member on this forum and have been trying to source some different brands of ammo for it, at the moment the only one I can find is Privi 100grn sp, this in the rifle shots ok but nothing spectacular maybe 1.5-2" max groups, whilst this isn't brilliant it's not ideal ,so I would like to try something slightly heavier, but like I've said it seems nowhere within 20 miles of me stock anything in .25-06 and they seem pretty reluctant to order any in, I'm just wondering if anyone else who shoots this cal have trouble finding factory ammo?

    Have you tried Swillington Shooting Supplies? They are usually pretty good with Ammo.

    I have mate, nothing and they don't know when they'll be getting any in
    I have also tried
    Browns Lock stock and barrel.
    York guns.
    Shooters World Mexbrough.
    South Yorks shooting supplies.
    Hardy's Sheffield.
    Kirklees Guns.
    The only place that has anything is Henry Kranks in Pudsey and that is the 100 grn Privi.
    I can see me swapping for a .270 .

    Hi jase
    I am shocked! They usually have a good selection of ammo. I have had 117 grain sako from there and put lads from this forum onto them.

    What about Hannams for some Hornady?

    Me too Yorkie, they've always had what I've needed before, I'm just struggling with .25-06, who are Hannams mate? as I've never heard of them.

    They have Hornady 25-06 ammo on their price list. Worth a phone call.

    You could always try going about your search the other way round and ring the importers (The Sako 117 grain are well worth a try) and ask them who your local stockists are.
