Re: ruger,rem,savage, browning..velocity diffrence?
As hogghead said they all vary. But for a given length they do not variy significantly and unless you have a chronograph, you will never notice it in trajectory or terminal performance.
the variation might be 100 fps in your 25-06, not significant. but don't be confused, the velocities in ammo manufacturer catalogs will almost always be higher, as they use barrels that are just on the high side. And you might have a 24 inch barrel and the manufacturer tested his in a 30 inch tube.
In your post you asked does one manufacturer "...consistantly produce higher velocity's". again as said before NO. A given Remington might have a higher velocity than a Savage or a Winchester. Then another Savage might have a higher velocity than another Reminton. There is no consistently higher velocity brand, with similiar ammo.
Accuracy also varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, as it does from model to model, and gun to gun.
