Published .25-35 data is extremely limited, so I used .25 Remington data (Ken Water's Pet Loads) as a baseline. I figured I could safely push 80 gr bullets to 2,800 fps and 100's to 2,600 fps from the rifle's 24" barrel. My data is as follows...
* 80 gr TTSX 29 gr H4895 2,812 fps
* 100 gr Partition 27.5 gr H4895 2,632 fps
The rifle wears a Zeiss 4X Conquest and his longest shot has been about 80 yds. All others were inside of 30 yds. He's always put the bullet in the vitals and we've never had a problem. At 18, I've offered to get him a bigger rifle, but he doesn't want one. His mom's .270 is there for him if he wants it, she doesn't hunt anymore.
