Just got a new barrel for my Contender in 25 Bullberry (15 inch). I am trying to accumulate components to reload. Only punching paper right now but thinking maybe a deer next season. Wondering if anyone here uses this caliber and what they would suggest. Primers,powder,bullets,what works for you? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Safe shooting
Enjoy life but remember, we are only practicing for something better.

I shoot the 25-35 and 25-35AI in rifles.
In my rifles IMR 4320 and Alliant Reloder 10 give the best performance velocity and accuracy wise with the 100-grain bullets.
From the 20 25-35 (modern rifles not antiques) I easily obtain 2,600 fps with 2 and less accuracy for 5 shot groups at 100-yards not every group but I expect to shoot that well every time.
I use the 100-grain Speer JHP bullet feeding them through the magazine in my Winchester for deer and large varmints with very good results.
The bulk Remington 100-grain JSP bullets may well surprise you with their accuracy also.
