Win Model 71 225cal

Help. I've recently inhereited and imported from Canada a Winchester Model 71 rifle in 225 caliber. I'm interested in getting as much info as possible about this gun. The only barrel markings are Winchester Model 71, Win 225, Olin Manufacturing, Brampton, Ont. and a serial number.

I also was able to get about 300 unused caterages and am looking for reloading info.

Any help would be appreciated.

YOU use this data at your own risk, always reduce maximum loads by 10% and work up. need more data, my e-mail is [email protected] Quote from Lyman> "NOTE: Velocity readings in this caliber tend to be very erratic from one gun to the next. Pressures tend to jump around quite a bit. Data taken in one gun will not necessarily be uniform with results in another gun. "
