I'd vote for 256 Winchester over a 25-20. The 256 brass is beefier and not that difficult to form from 357 Magnum cases. I have a 10" 256Win Bull barrel and like shooting the 75 gr. V-max bullets for critters and the 86 gr. Remingon bulk bullets for plinking.handcanon said:has anyone ever had (or still have) a TC in the .25-20 and if so did you like it?
It's a blast. I shoot 14 gr. of H4227 with the 75 gr. bullets(which isn't a hot load) and the recoil is very low as is the muzzle blast.handcanon said:WOW I never thought about that one. is it fun to shoot? and what is the dif in the speeds??
I got my set-up from Jim Graham. 10" Octagon barrels are more common than Bull barrels, but I think you'll be happy with either. 256 Win dies can be spendy, but deals on them do show up on eBay from time to time.handcanon said:do you know of anyone that has one to trade eather the 25-20 or the 256 win?
