25-06 berger 115gr VLD powder load

I have a 25-06 Rem that I am trying to figure out a load for that I could use a berger 115gr vld for. Does any body have a good powder and the weight for this load that I could get a tight group at six hundred yards to a thousand yards?

Re: 25-06 berger 115gr VLD powder load

Welcome tonganjord!

I too have a 25-06. My encore consistently shoots 2.5-3" groups at 400 with 115 VLD's. Here's my load data

115 Berger VLD
52.0 gr. H4831SC
Fed GM210M
~0.010" off lands

I've shot this out to 550 and had great success but I haven't taken it past that. Im sure some of the others will chime in and give their opinions. Hope this helps.

I was using RL22 and CCI 200 primers but can't remember the exact load. I will see if I can find it.

Re: 25-06 berger 115gr VLD powder load

My load is:

54 gr of H4831sc
.010 off the lands
3050fps out of a 24" barrel

This is not max but I would start lower and work up.

Drops have been verified out to 700 yds so far. Shot a 3.8" group with it at 700 yds the other day.

I had a custom turret calibrated for a100 gr nosler spitzer with a velocity of 3170 fps. How much will it change by switching to a 115 gr vld berger. Any tips to try and make it so my turret won't be so far off by switching?

I don't think that it would work. Different BC and different weight will give you very different drops.
