Aaron, I have yet to load either of these castings, but the 70 grain is of more interest and I intend to pick up the 60 grain as well. The 85 grain which should work fine in the 25-20, I wanted that one more for my 14 inch twist 250/3000.
When recently asked to do a 2 different remodel jobs, I have a bad habit of just say “sure”. So combine that with Alaskan winters I don’t get to do this hobby of shooting, loading and casting hardly at all. This year I did turn those two jobs down, with the idea of getting something done on the homestead plus the above mentioned hobby, and golf and a little fishing.
So unfortunately with the limits put on my life by not saying “NO” I’ve been more of a mold collector then the caster, shooter that I want to be.
As far as your rifle goes if you’re ashamed of it I could help you out with that problem. You can’t help what the previous owners taste’s are, but it looks nice to me. I’m a blue steel and lumber kinda old school guy, but I would have a hard time walking by that rifle at a gun show if I had the jingle in my pocket.
Just last week I went to a gun show and there was a Ruger Security Six, 4”, but it was stainless. So I passed, had the cash, if it was blue it would have come home with me. Got to looking at my GP100 stainless tank and started thinking about the Security Six and went back Sunday morning, it was of course gone.
