MY son at 18 finally got his first buck this being his 4th year of hunting. This is his 5th deer and all have been taken with his Contender Carbine .25-35. I load either 80gr TTSX's or 100gr Partitions and at wood's ranges the outcome is never in doubt.

Well that sure is a purty first buck! Congrats to your son!

I'd rather have a bad day hunting than a good day working!

Good stuff. Congrats to your son.

Never shot a deer with that cartridge. I have a Win 94 safe queen in that cartridge tucked a way in a safe. Need to load it up and go hunt'n some day.

I plan to mount the rack on a wood plaque with the empty cartridge case and a brass plate w/his name and date. Will save the shoulder mount for something bigger.

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.

Thank you for the load data.

using the Hornady 100, i went up to 28.0 of H4895, then backed down to 27.0, never clocked those , had always wondered about speeds.

my gun also did pretty well with AA2460 & Nosler 85 BT's...you have probably have seen this link, Gunblast reviews of the 25/35, some decent speeds with that powder in his rifle.

http://www.gunblast.com/Winchester_25-35.htm

my carbine is a 1-10 twist, TC custom shop barrel, just swapped out the 4xleupold for a 1-75-6x short tube. gonna make it a point to kill more stuff with this one.

Congrats to your son on a fine whitetail. I had one of those Contender Carbines in .223 back in the 90's. I killed a ton of groundhogs with it and then got a 7-30 Waters barrel thinking it was the answer for deer hunting. I sold the thing before I ever got the chance to blood it. Another one on my foul ups in life.


Experience is what you get, when you don't get what you want!
