Factory load ?

First off I know a lot of people hand load, and I'm sure I'll give it a try down the road, but I don't have the time to get into that now, nor do I think it is necessary for what I am trying to do.
I'm looking for a good factory round for white tail out to say 400 - 500 yards.
The gun is a being built still, it savage 25.06 FLCP-K w/o the brake.

I know that no one can say for sure what the gun will like, but those of you with savages: what factory load has your gun shot well with?

TIA

    If I were you I would try two or three different factory loads and see how it shoots at the longer ranges your intending to hunt, 300-400 yards if possible. Iv had great luck with hornady ammo in all the rifles Iv tried.

    Here are some to consider.

    Hornady SUPERFORMANCE Ammunition 25-06 Remington 117 Grain SST Box of 20 - MidwayUSA

    HSM Trophy Gold Ammunition 25-06 Remington 115 Grain Berger Hunting VLD Hollow Point Boat Tail Box of 20 - MidwayUSA

    Federal Premium Vital-Shok Ammunition 25-06 Remington 100 Grain Barnes Triple-Shock X Bullet Hollow Point Lead-Free Box of 20 - MidwayUSA

    Federal Premium Vital-Shok Ammunition 25-06 Remington 117 Grain Sierra GameKing Boat Tail Soft Point Box of 20 - MidwayUSA

    Federal Premium Vital-Shok Ammunition 25-06 Remington 115 Grain Nosler Partition Box of 20 - MidwayUSA

    Winchester Supreme Ammunition 25-06 Remington 110 Grain Nosler AccuBond Box of 20 - MidwayUSA

    Black Hills Gold Ammunition 25-06 Remington 100 Grain Barnes Triple-Shock X Bullets Hollow Point Flat Base Lead-Free Box of 20 - MidwayUSA

    Hornady Custom Ammunition 25-06 Remington 117 Grain SST Box of 20 - MidwayUSA

    If I were to narrow it down, it would be the Hornady 117 SST's, HSM, Federal 117 SGK or the Winchester Accu-Bond.

    my opinion is whitetails are not created equal. the ones in sask weigh 300 pounds and you have to pay 7k to hunt them . the ones in az weigh 90 pounds. you said whitetails? which ones?. what tank said : 117 super , 115 berger or the 117 sierra.

    I would go with the HSM Trophy Gold. You cant get much better loaded ammunition than theres and you cant get a better bullet. And for the price you cant beat that eather.
