The number of wildcat cartridges that are now 'factory' rounds is long and distinguished...

.22-250
7mm-08
6,5-284
280 Remington
.257 Roberts
.25-'06
.35 Whelen
and a bunch more.

I own a Ruger No.1 in 25-'06 (25" barrel) and a .257 Roberts. I like them both! the .257 is a 300 yard rifle, but the .25-'06 is great for those loooong shots on Coues deer and antelope. The 25s work well on coyotes, too.
@Nevada Mike
You've got to love the 25s for versatility.

The 25 out six and the 257 Weatherby and my own 25/303 Epps Newton improved are even more of a good thing

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
