I am no expert. I have played with resizing 30-06 to .270 the problem I run into and I dont know if you will have the same with the 25-06. My problem is overall case length when I resize from .30 to .270 I loose about .125 in case length. I dont know how to get around that. I have test fired a few but would not rely on them other than for a situation where I could not get any other brass. But like I said I am in no way an expert.
I used lee resizing lube and worked the press real slow into the die. They came out looking good and all the measurements looked good other than overall length.
