A legendary 25-06 ammunition by design and through manufacturing heritage, the bullet loaded in this ammo, Sierra’s Game King projectile, has been a mainstay in American hunters’ gun cabinets for decades. The former Wildcat cartridge which utilizes a necked down .30-06 cartridge and holds a .257 caliber bullet was conceived in 1912 but wasn’t standardized until 1969. A fast, flat shooting round that can be used for animals from prairie dogs to elk, this particular loadout features a projectile near the upper end of the spectrum for the caliber at 117 grains.
The long range shots that this cartridge is capable of, makes it a great addition to those who know they will be taking longer range shots, like plains states hunters. The muzzle velocity of 3030 feet per second and the kinetic energy of 2385 make it suitable for moderate and large game with the 117 grain projectile. The Sierra Game King, a sibling to the Match King has been a proven bullet design and has espoused the quality centric production methodologies of the Sierra Brand for a very long time. It is a substantially superior bullet to most of the projectiles on the market today that are “hunting” specific.
