I am thinking about building a rifle on a 700 LA mag frame in 25 wssm and having the chamber through cut a lil deep to handle the blackjack and hammer bullets. Has anyone loaded that caliber to magnum characteristics to get more speed and energy out of it?

Since you have a long action have you looked at a 25-300 WSM. I built one on a win 70 WSM action shooting 115 Bergers at 3300. I run 270 WSM brass through the sizing die and clean up the necks a little and it works great. Just something to consider.

I have lave looked at doing the 25 pronghorn (25-300wsm) too. I just think to much and get something stuck in my head that I just have to do it. I am doing a remage barrel so If I want I can switch to that If I dont like it.

The 6.5 wsm would be a simple neck down to your .25

I keep thinking about a 6.5 PRC necked down to .25 cal and using that same bullet. It would bring the velocity back up with the bigger case and using the heavier bullet. I can't help but think that the .25 WSSM would drop me too far below that 2900-3000 fps I like with the quarter bore. Just my thoughts is all.

I wonder about just ladder load it up to magnum pressures like all the other wssms

I also was thinking of doing 25/300 wsm
