You should post this in the reloading and target shooting forum,you should find out what you are looking for there.Sounds like a nice rifle have you had a chance to take it to the range yet,should be a shooter.

I hear you about being new,it wont take you long to figure out this site.the 25-06 is a good round not suprised by your cloverleaf.there is a lot of people on this site and most are pretty helpfull,dont be afraid to ask questions.I have gotten some good answers to my questions.good luck with your new rifle.

Welcome to the site.

Congratulations on getting your project to a shootable stage. I took two bucks this fall with a 98 mauser I made. Gives you a good feeling!!

As for data for the 25, I have one but haven't used it enough to reload in a while.

You'll get some good info on here. Also check out relodersnest.com they have lots of loads for most guns. Just be careful, start low and work up to hot loads.

I use mine for deer and varmints. The varmint loads are 75gr Hornady V-max. Work great for prairie dogs/woodchucks/fox/ about anything.
The deer loads are 117gr Sierra BT. I have a bunch of others coming to work with [Nosler ballistic tips, 110gr Accubonds, and a few others].
The nice thing is being able to make them from 30-06 cases which can be found pretty cheap. Powders I have used include IMR-4895, IMR-4350, and Accurate Arms-3100, I think the 3100 might be being marketed under Alliant now [I had 8lb kegs of it before and seemed to be on my last bit].
