Does anyone know of a source for bulk federal rifle brass? I'm looking for 25-06 specifically. I spent some time searching online last night and came up with nothing. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

Thanks, I'll check it out. I stumbled onto a great load with the federal brass and when I tried it using win brass, it didn't group as well.

ammobrasstrader.com is another.

Federal dosen't sell brass as a component.

You could always form it out of 30-06, 270, 280 brass.

Any reason for needing Federal brass?

coop923,
When all else fails you can always wait for a sale at Cabela's and buy Federal ammo. Last sale they had I bought Federal 30-06 for $9.99 a box. (I bought 100 rounds) I think there as a sale last week but the price was $12.99 but that's still not bad in today's environment.

I use 270,30-06 to form my 280,
you could try doing that with Fed.in other caliburs,

Jon,
I was trying to work up a load for my brother-in-law using an assortment of brass that he gave me. I started with the Federal because that's what he had the most of. It grouped really well and when I tried Winchester brass, the groups opened up a bit.

If you're looking for accuracy like that, the problem is not the case, it is the case volume. You would need to re-ladder your charges to find the best one for that brass case type, since the manufacturing tolerances make the cases slightly different.
Otherwise, it's not bad brass.

Evan,
By "ladder", do you mean to drop the charge a couple grains and work back up with R-P or W-W cases?

I'd be willing to bet if you played with either Remington or Winchester brass you could get a load just as accurate. The only .25/06 brass I use is Winchester and I've had great luck.

Coop: Yep, that's what I mean.
Your problem is the different brand of brass has a slightly different volume and that means your charge may need adjusted up or down slightly to get the same pressures and results.

I'll play around with R-P and W-W cases. Thanks everyone.
