 I LIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Also chambered in my second FAVORITE cartridge.  What grain bullet over what charge and type of powder?

300 - not sure what recipe he used, but I know it's partitions, this is just a test to see if she will be accurate or not. I plan to shoot 100 TTSX - if the gun likes um.  I may try some IMR4350
 
IF anybody has a recipe to share - that would be great.

the 25-06 is a great candidate for super slow powders. imr 7828 h retumbo ram shot magnum, but rl-19 imr 4831 imr 4350 and h 4831 are good choices too.

i wish my father in law would go buy some .257 diam bullets, he has a 25-06 in a winm70 that i would love to reload for. we have the dies and a ton of brass and i have powder for it, but he doesnt have any primers or bullets yet. when i start to mess with it i will let you know what we come up with. i plan to try using something in that 100-110gr bullet weight also, i was thinking of the 110 gr nosler accubonds.

HEY we think alike, I wanted the accu-bonds too, but I want to stay at 100gr, so I will try the TTSX first.
 
yes if you would share your finds with me that would be great.

  I used 55gr of IMR4831 w/100gr Nosler Solid Base bullets until Nosler quit offering them and my supply went dry.  I now use 52.7gr of RL-22 w/115gr Nosler Partitions.

  Honestly never got to be around one. Heard and read GOOD reviews about them in the limited time they were around though.  Typical GOOD Japanese workmanship of that era (up to 1981).

   No problem,Sam.  I did drag out my Blue Book and honestly would have thought they were worth more.

   So what do you feel they compare to as far as what's available today?  What are they chambered for?

  Hey J,Golden Eagle rifles were manufactured and distributed worldwide by Kodensha Co.,Ltd. of Tochigi,Japan. Both Nikko Firearms Co.,Ltd. and Nikko Arms Co.,Ltd were trade names.
  I've also read that a Winchester Model 777,a Golden Eagle look-alike, was made by Olin-Kodensha in West Germany in maybe the early 80's.
  NEAT stuff!

Both are in 25-06. Hand me downs from dad, and grandpa. Grandpa's is like new, and will probably stay that way, as I put it back in the box. The other shoots 1/2" groups all day long with remington ammo. I don't really know what to compare the rifle to though, as they have a kind of weatherby type stock, but a 5 lug bolt, with the lugs on the back, and a short bolt lift like a Mark V. I guess you could compare it to a Browning. Here is a picture of the bolt design.

Hey Guys, thanks for all the info!!
 
Hey 300S&W - you got it pegged, thats who made it, going shoot her this weekend. heading up to the camp this weekend - in Woodville, MS - Friday about noon, for shooting  and morning turkey hunting.
 
Man I worked hard again today, we are changing out 500 computers at LA DSS  in Lafayette, LA, but tomorrow I am back in the shop in Baton Rouge - get to sit in my chair
