UPDATE went to the Tennessee event so this was put on hold. today found brass and ordered some. Huntington came thru. still no dies. also the gun came or was suppose to come with some ammo. it did as i was going out the door to, you guessed it Tenn. i hope i have enough brass to shoot for a bit of time. i will try to reload as best i can till dies can be had.
thanks to all for your suggestions. this forum can give helpful advice, and i do appreciate it. still looking for dies, hint, hint.

nothing in life is easy!!! cleaned and primed what brass i have and went looking for load data. for no real good reason i looked in cartridges of the world to see what they had to offer. good thing i did! stevens 25 uses a .251 bullet. most 25 caliber guns take a .257. this will be a lead only rifle. COW did say that 10 or 11 grains of black powder was the original loading so that is a place to start.
