I simply read the article around hunting with brand-new 25-45 sharps. I have a few questions.

You are watching: 25-45 sharps vs 6.8 spc

First, due to the fact that I"m a hand loader, space dies availibe for me to neck increase my very own brasses. I have just end 2000 pieces of 223 brass. I have the right to dedicate a couple of hundred piece to a purehunting cartridge.

My next question is just how does this cartridge compare to the 6.8 SPC and also the 6.5 grendle?

I working on a .308 construct for searching black bear, but I would certainly love to have a medium video game cartridge that peforms fine in a rifle that is much lighter 보다 an SR25 communication rifle, for this reason my interest in the Sharps

RCBS and Redding die are available right now. Sharps has actually them for sale ~ above their site even.

As for your question about the 6.8 SPCII and also 6.5, ns don"t have experience v either so i can"t yes, really comment.

Looking in ~ the ballistics information I"ve seen, the .25-45 Sharps offers about the same power as the 6.8 (using 115gr), however it will certainly fly flatter, more down range. So, I"d say it has actually some benefits over the 6.8.

When you to compare the 6.5 with say, a 90gr projectile, the Sharps cartridge still has a bit much more velocity and energy at the muzzle (2880fps vs 3000fps,1,658fpe vs 1,739fpe).

I"d to speak the 6.5 and Sharps are pretty equal rivals when comparing comparable weight projectiles. However the 6.8 and also 6.5 market the "advantage" of enabling you to shoot heavier projectiles than the .25-45, at the very least at this time. So far I"m see 110 grain .257 caliber projectiles together being about the heaviest, whereby as the .264 and also .277 cals can be had actually in 130 grains or more.

I have actually both the 6.5 grendel and also the 25x45 sharps. I like them both. The Sharps is simple to reload and also make brass from one of two people 223 or 5.56. The Grendel walk cost an ext to reload brass is difficult to find and expensive. I deserve to tell you the the 25x45 loaded with a 90 sierra hp is deadly medication for whitetails. Have not had a opportunity to hunt with the Grendel yet. Simply my 2 cents

I have both the 6.5 grendel and also the 25x45 sharps. I choose them both. The Sharps is simple to reload and also make brass from either 223 or 5.56. The Grendel go cost more to reload brass is daunting to find and also expensive. I can tell you the the 25x45 loaded with a 90 sierra hp is deadly medicine for whitetails. Have actually not had a opportunity to hunt with the Grendel yet. Simply my 2 cents


I would love to see some images of the whitetails you have taken v the Sharps! I"m placing in for my critical year the Mule Deer right here in California, so ns am hoping to get drawn for a decent zone wherein I have the right to kill one v the Sharps!

You deserve to reform 7.62x39 brass into 6.5 Grendal by running it v the Grendel resizing die and then loading and also firing. I have actually done this. 7.62x39 brass is plentiful. Just be sure you fully resize the situations to Grendel. If friend don"t they will certainly not chamber.

I have actually recently thought around picking increase a .25-45 Sharps barrel to try it.

Hey, simply wanted to watch if anyone has actually been reloading the 25-45 and worked up new loads. I have ordered a collection of dies from Sharps and also wanted to view if you recognize of any brand-new reloading data other than what Sharps has. Want to shot to work up something brand-new but I"m new to reloading and do not want to damages my rifle or myself.
