Hi all,
how could we forget the good ol' "quarter bore" (25 caliber) cartridges.
cartridges, both modern and classic, including

250 savage (250/3000)
25 super (25-08)
257 roberts
25-06
and any other 25 calibre rifle cartridges not yet mentioned.

Could y'all please post the loads that have worked well for you, in regards to reliability, accuracy, and terminal performance.
the 25 calibre was once (and still is ?) a popular cartridge calibre and the more loads that work, we can share, the better.
Could you please also share the following data;

1) Rifle type and model etc, (and barrel twist if you know it)
2) case,
3) primer,
4) powder (+ amount),
5) projectile,
6) cartridge-over-all-length (or to the lands),
7) estimated or known velocity
8 ) Bullet performance (group size etc) (pics are good here too)
9) a short note about its terminal (hunting) performance, if applicable.


note; What may be safe in one firearm may not be safe in another.
safe shooting. B)
