25-06 load in Sako?

Looking for opinions on a good 25-06 load with 100 grain bullets. I tried the H4831sc and RL22 this wknd. 54.0 gr of RL22 printed a decent group, but it is not consistent. Any opinions? Thanks

I use a Remmie Senderro in 25/06.Have tried many different powder(N160,RL22,H4831,H4350)and bullet combinations but always return to 52 grains H4350 under a Sierra 100 BTSP.The only reason i carry on experimenting is that i enjoy tinkering so much.Ballistic tips also excell but are twice the money and dont expand as well.Hope this helps.
GOOD HUNTING.

I think I have a load for you to try. 117g SBT, 53g of H-4831, Fed 210, W-W case, 3.150". Has given me an average group of about .18" for 3 shots at 100 yards. First group was 1 hole (.043"), second group was 2 shots 1 hole, with the other shot touching (.3"). If that dont work, try 52g of IMR-4350 and 100g B-tip. Consistently gave me .4"-.6" at 100 yards and 3350fps.

Rem 25-06's load works great in a friends Sako. --- of imr 4350 with a 100NBT shoots around 1/2" and close to 3400 FPS work up to it its over noslers book max. Deer drop like hit by lightening.

I use 57 grains of R22 with the 100 Nosler Ballistic Tip. Best velocity of all powders, with acceptable accuracy.

Good hunting. LB

I want to thank everyone for their input. Back to the range. I will post a range report when I get the chance to get to the range. Thanks again.
