my 257 Creedmoor started shooting poorer groups so i decided to clean the rifle and take the carbon out. i used J.B. bore cleaning compound its a dirty job but it works ,rifle went back to under a 1/2 inch at 100 yards 5 shot groups,with the 115 gr. black Nosler B.T.. but i still can not get those Black Jack bullets to shoot good consistent groups ,i give up on them with this rifle ? there is a small winter money shoot north of Princeton,Mn. this Sunday at 8 A.M. so i think i will take this 25 Creedmoor,distances are 100-500- yards and it only cost $40.00 and your own ammo to shoot with a free lunch. i would do better with some other rifles but i wanna see what this 25 Creedmoor does out at distances with these 115 GR, black Nosler B.T.,with the ballistic books and and some calculated guess work we will see what happens ?

Sunday i went to the Winter rifle shoot as i expected i shot in the middle of the pack with a rifle i never have shot past 100 yards ,my calculations with using the reloading book were a little wrong my bullets hit high on the targets all day long.but this cartridge did seem to group well with Nosler 115 B.T. hunting bullets with the black coating. you only get 30 shots from a 100 - 500 yards at 2 different targets at each distance,sounds easy its not.at this shoot their are some very good shooters even a 1000 yd. national bench-rest winner and he didn`t win either. we talked about the 131 gr. Black Jack bullets nobody seems to feel these bullets shoot well ,but all think this 25 Creedmoor should shoot well but needs better bullets. i do have some Berger 115 gr 25 caliber bullets on the way to my business ,so that will be the next bullet i will try.whats nice about these Creedmoor cartridges is very little recoil and accurate which does make it more fun to shoot and play with at the rifle range.

At least you have some choices, though not what you set out to use. Making good bullets consistently appears to be tough. Maybe they'll catch on after a bit.

Hodgdon claims over 3000 with 115gr Bergers in the 6mm with Stabal6.5 (24"), so I'm calling it good.

what could a 25 creedmoor potentially do that a 257 roberts could not do better?
look closely at both case dimensions


The Roberts when loaded to modern pressures has no shade really. (+P is good from factory producers) But saami specs on standard ammo leave it anemic. The "creedmore" version would be submitted as a higher pressure spec right from the start.

By the way, Duane Spooner (sp?) of Duane's Gun repair came up with his pet the .257 DGR years ago by necking down the .260R and has reloading data and experience that should make load development for the "25 creedmore" a little easier. Some other options would be the .25 Souper, Dasher, and a couple others. The faster twist barrel should make it a fun project.

You will find the Bergers to shoot very well. I`ve used them for a number of years in my 250AI. 1x10 twist 26 inch comp. gun at 3K using RL-17. If they don`t, you have a problem other than bullets.
Good Luck

I had really good results with the Berger 115 in a 257 roberts AI. I was shooting them through a 1/9 PacNor barrel on a Savage target action.

Anyone come up with some load data for the 85-100 grain range of bullets?
