100 gr and 115 gr Ballistic tips with reloader 22.

You should realize 3300-3400 with the 100's and 3100-3200 fps with the 115 gr in the 26" tube sendero.

Im fond of the 115g btip. Pretty high BC, .450 and if loaded to 3100fps with powder such as IMR-4350, H4831, or RL-22 can be had with .5-.75" groups is killer for deer out to 600 and coyotes and groundhogs to 1000yards. I'm on my 2nd 25-06 which is a Win Mdl 70 classic sporter. Beautiful rifle and shoots equally as well. It loves the 117g SGK with H4831. 3 shot group at 100 yards was .043". 100g btips with 52g IMR-4350 is also a great load delivering .5" groups and 3350fps. My 25-06 wears a Leupold VX2, 6-18x40 Target, fine duplex. I love the 25-06, its easily my favorite cartridge. I have shot everythign from ground squirrels to black bear to muleys to coyotes to antelope, from 50-600 yards, all with amazing results. Heres a pic of my rifle.
