Hey guys I have gotten into reloading recently. I am going to be loading for a 7mm mag, a 25-06, a .204, and a .270. Does anybody have any good loads worked up for one of these calibers?

I would recommend picking up at least 2 and even better 3-4 reloading manuals, do a little research into the calibers you are reloading for and take a best guess starting load or two for each. test the loads at the range and evaluate the resulting accuracy, velocity and/or recovered bullet data. what works for one individual and their firearm my not be the best overall round for you and your firearm. barrel twist, length, action, wear and even climate can play a big role in ballistics in general.

all said, that doesn't mean you cant get a few of the forums members pet loads and start from there, I am just recommending not skipping too many steps in your new adventure.

Actually I have 3 reloading manuals and have done my research I was just looking to see if anyone had particular load worked up for one of these rounds that I could try and see how it might work in my gun.

I reload for 2 of the 4 calibers you list. I have the 25-06 load workup down and am trying out Accubonds soon. I am still working up a load for the 270 but H4350 has promise with a balistic tip or Accubond bullet.

Rifle: Marlin XL7 in 25-06
Load: 51.5g - H4831 or 39.5g - Varget
Bullet: 117 gr Sierra Game King
Primer: CCI-200
Brass: Remington
Seat: .030 of lands (OAL=3.135)
Results: 5 shot group @ 100 yards = 0.662-0.0731 groups
