Now that is funny!

131g BJ bullets are going to change the game

Pete, wish you the best in your new game changer.

In my creeds, the hornady brass takes a different load than the lapua brass, as internal capacity is different...chasing bug holes.

i used the 6.5 Redding full length bushing die, i changed the bushing and you also have change the expander ball to a 25 caliber, off hand i don`t remember the bushing sizes,maybe .292 ? you also need to lube your cases every time i use that Redding wax,even the new cases need lube when you change the neck size to 25 caliber. i learned some of these things by trial and error ,in the video`s some of these simple things are not mentioned. i do plan on shooting some today again at 100 yds.

i shot a couple of groups with the new neck turned- weighed Lapua brass it does shoot some what better, groups are now 3/8 5 shot. i seem to have the best results with less powder 40 grains of H4350 i just volume load ,i have a Redding powder measure. but i plan on trying some H414 that is a ball powder that the powder volume loads very nice and maybe will be more accurate. this rifle will probably used more in the winter rifle shoots too,i may have my own rifle range,but this time of year i am plenty busy,i shoot trap too.i have only shot about 50 rounds thru this rifle so far and those were the 3rd and 4th time i shot 5 shot groups. but i have been cleaning this rifle alot with only wipe-out too. this project with the 25 Creedmoor is alot of fun ,kinda reminds me of my first 7mm-08 i built before gun manufactures decided to build the 7mm-08,i also think the 25 Creedmoor might become a another normal manufactured cartridge as did the 7mm-08 ?

You really need to work on your typing. You come across as uneducated or something do to your poor ability to type in a normal manner. I hope you speak better than you type.

liberal / troll : anytime you wanna bring some cash / $100.00 or more, to my gun range and shoot a couple of groups against me or shoot 100 clay pigeons at a trap range for cash against me bring it on. we can have a service Vet hold the cash. >otherwise just go away !

I would give RL17 a try in the 25 CM. 👍 Might improve your velocity by 100fps or so and should keep your accuracy. I switched all my 6.5 CM’s from H4350 to RL17. Love the stuff in the 6.5 CM, 6mm CM, .243 LBC, 6x6.8 SPC and the 6.5x6.8 SPC.


New high capacity pistol and rifle magazines for sale: I will ship as complete rebuild kits to the lower 48. PM for pricing.

today i used Reloader 17 and my groups went to 5/8 inch ,then i took 10 of the once fired weighed and neck turned Lapua brass and shot those 10 again 7 went in a 1/4 inch group the other 3 were still 5/8 of the 10. next time i shoot i will load those same 7 Lapua cases and see if they still shoot in the same place ? i used to do this with my 7mm-08 brass that i neck down 308 Lapua brass, weighed ,neck turned and shot tell i found matching cases . in my area they had winter shoots ,also with best 5 shot group at 100 yards for money with a hunting rifle years ago . with the right benchrest equipment,scope , barrel thats glass bedded and a decent trigger some guns will shoot some very nice groups too. i also notice using Reloader 17 powder this rifle seem very smooth and the same feeling of push recoil maybe as some say balanced harmonics ? not sure ?

i just got my Remington Model 30 Express action back with a new 25 inch Brux barrel, #3 -7 1/2 twist 257 Roberts and just glass bedded stock.maybe this old rifle will shoot well too with Black Jack bullets or Nosler Partitions 115 gr. ?like i told Greg the machinist maybe this old rifle will out shoot my 25 Creedmoor ?
