Hi,
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.
Thanks
Safe shooting
Doug

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.
