    There is one in the works that is based on the 6mm Mongoose case necked up to 6.5, or down to .257, I don't remember which. The Mongoose was designed to push the heavier bullets in 6mm from a 5.56 based case, and does that very well, so if that can be done with the larger bore it will beat the .25x45.

    A test I did for a fellow with 117's. None of the loads showed being MAX at these levels.

    I have a 25-223 in a savage bolt action with a 23.5" lilja barrel. It prefroms really well with 75-110gr bullets, 3100fps down to 2700fps. I have a longer throat and use it as a single shot, so I'm not limited to AR15 mag length. It's a really good round in a bolt action and I have shot it out to 1100 yards.

    In an AR the 6x45 is better for general use with 55-87gr, Id rather shoot 6.8s for 85-120gr though.

    The .25 caliber is overlooked in my opinion.

    I run this caliber, it was my first AR. I love it. I have gotten good accuracy from quite a few different bullets. Mine is a 20" barrel. Have not run them over a chrono as I don't own one. The 70 gr BlitzKings are devastating on varmints and very accurate. Don't have my load data with me right now but will post it later. I have loaded up some 100gr Partitions and Ballistic tips and had to load way down to get them to a 2" group. I did get to chrono these and with I'm thinking around 23 gr of powder I was getting 2330 fps out of them. I didn't want to push these too much as there is no load data and SRC advises against using them. They use a RN for their 100gr+ bullets because it's bearing surface is longer then a spitzer type bullet. With the 100gr bullets I am at the edge. I can't seat them any deeper or I will crimp on the oglive and can't hang them out any longer because of magazine length. I have talked to a few people and their answer was to trim some off the neck. I haven't tried this yet and not sure I want to.
