    oldred replied to a thread 25 Stevens in Rimfire Area
    VERY interesting! I have been watching this thread the last couple of days (anything about the 25's gets my attention!), I checked that link and I see they actually have the 25-25 cases I have searched for with no luck and while these are a bit...

    I'm not personally all that familiar with the Stevens 44 action but my thoughts on any BP action that can take only light smokeless loads is that it could be dangerous even if the smokeless load won't normally exceed BP pressures. The reason I think...
