Description
 
For more than half a century, the .25-06 was nothing more than a wildcat cartridge. That is until Remington picked it up in 1969. Essentially, the .25-06 is a necked down version of the .30-06 to accept a .257 caliber bullet. Charles Newton was the first to create the .25-06 in 1912, using the 117-grain .25-35 bullet. The cartridge first found a home at Franford Arsenal during World War 1, when it developed an experimental cartridge and used is in the war. Following the war, the release of Military equipment through the Civilian Marksmanship Program caused even more gunsmiths to begin experimenting with the round.

The .25-06 has the same distance from the base of the case to its shoulder as the parent .30-06 case. However, the SAAMI certified over-all length of the .25-06 is shorter than its parent case. The .25-06 has a respectable velocity, able to push the 85-grain bullet at 3,200 feet per second and the heavier 120-grain at 3,200 feet per second. This makes the round perfect for hunting, especially for varmint and predator hunters. If the .25-06 was a good round in the 1920s, the increased technology in today’s powders and projectiles make it an even better choice. Perhaps that’s why it has seen a rise in popularity of late, even more so among young hunters looking for low recoil

Each box contains 50 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
