Old Nosler load data

Hi, If anyone has some load data from an older Nolser manual for the 25 cal (25-06) 115's (#25115) I'd love to see if. My Hornady manual has a 120 grain bullet maxing at 3100 fps while Noslers current data on the 115's max at 3030fps. I figured the 115 should be faster than that 120.

Any help would be great!

I've got a Nosler 5th edition. Let's see, 25-06 and 115 bullets... It shows a max load of IMR4350, 49.0 grains at 3095 fps. It also shows a max load of IMR4831, 52.0 grains, at 3116 fps. It also shows IMR4350 as the most accurate powder tested.

In this, as in all things reloading, let your rifle be your guide. Start low and work up. Watch for pressure signs, and verify data with a chronograph.

Nosler manual # 6 (current) has same loads as PawPaw listed but they add couple more for the 115gr bullet.

53.5gr to 57.5gr/Retumbo

56.6gr to 60.5/Magnum

What really funny manual # 6 list most accurate @ 49gr/IMR-4350 @ 3095fps and start load 45gr/IMR-4350 @ 2877fps. Nolser manual # 1 only show data for the 115gr Partition and one of the loads starts at 45gr/IMR-4350 @ 2879fps and max 49gr/IMR-4350 @ 3097fps and most accurate load is 47gr/IMR-4350 @ 2983fps. Rifle in first manual they used Hart barrel 26" long with 1/10 twist and manual # 6 they used Wiseman barrel 24" long with 1/10 twist barrel.
