    QL Request 25-06 edition

    Noah, I just had a custom 25/06 built with a 1/7 twist 24” barrel on a Model 70 action. I worked up a load last week almost identical to what you ask except I used IMR 4831, 115 gr NBT, Hornady brass, CCI 200, 52.0 grs , 3080 fps , .775” group. While it shot the 117-110 gr bullets well, it...

    What's Your "Fun Gun"?

    Another vote for the BL22. But my Ruger 77/22 SS is a very close second

    What are your current LR hunting rigs...Pics would be great!

    I’ve got several long range rifles that I actively practice with and hunt with. Almost any deer caliber 25 cal that can shoot moa can be set up to kill deer out to 600 yds. I have several rigs that I have taken deer out to 500 plus yards including 6.5x55, 270 Win, 7 REM Mag, 7 Wea mag, 30/06...

    Sounds like mag length is not an issue and you have an awesome shooter. 1/2 moa will do anything you will ever need

    Cheap Rifles.

    I have a Ruger American in 7-08. I get .5 moa with my handloads. I bought the rifle used for $200 and put a refurbished Nikon 4x12 scope on it. So I have $300 in a half moa rifle. Hard pressed to beat that

    My current REM 700 Sendero in 300 Win Mag shoots 200 gr AB’s and NP’s much better than the 180’s. I’m getting less than 1/2 moa with each using RL22 and 2970 fps with less than a max book load.

    Ruger Precision Rifle

    While not a Ruger Precision Rifle, I shoot a very similar Savage BA10 Stealth which is Savage’s equivalent in 6.5 CM. It is topped with a Vortex 5x25 PST Gen II and I have quite successfully competed in F class to 1000 yards. Consistently shoots about half MOA. While all of the adjustments are...

    Working on the Whelen.

    You might try the Tubbs finishing system. I have had some luck with it in the past smoothing out a rough bore

    South Africa Hunt Booked. :)

    Guy, a wise friend told me that you seldom regret what you have done, but you very often regret what you have not done. I myself have realized this and started taking a few trips I otherwise would not have taken. Last fall I was very lucky to take a Canadian Moose and elk on a trip to BC. In...
