Are there any 25 Creed. shooters on here? I'm looking into different ideas for sizing the brass. No one makes die sets for it yet. I loaded some barrel break in rounds by putting my 25-06 seating stem in 6.5 Creed seating die , worked like a charm.

That's what is holding me back from one. Gavin (who Guy works with) with Ultimate Reloader has one and he has a couple videos regarding it, he did it 2 different ways if i remember correctly on separate videos.

25 CREED! 14" barrel, Pachmayr Dominator with 110 AB's
Shoots great, even with a pistol scope.
I just use 6 Creed dies (Different bushing, and even used the 6 Creed seat stem -Still shoots just fine

Nice shooting!

So the 25 Creedmoor is supposed to be virtually identical to the 250AI...
The load that I am hoping to develop for my 250AI is with the 110 gr AB. Going to try Re-26 and IMR 4451. Hoping to get 3100-3200 fps.
I would be interested in learning what your load is, and what you are getting out of your shorter barrel, so that I can compare to that out of my rifle with its 24" barrel when I get a chance.
My goal with this rifle is also an antelope, and hopefully someday a blackbuck and axis deer.

I’m wondering what velocity you are getting. I’m also going with a 14” barrel on my Striker.

I’m using Redding 6.5 Creedmoor full length S bushing dies and without looking I’m pretty sure a .282 bushing. I neck turn to a thickness of .013”. The Lapua brass was very close to that and I could have got by without turning but did it anyway since I was set up. The starline brass needed turned as it was a little thicker and more than I wanted for my chamber.
