Need advise...25 wssm

Hey ladies and gents,

Just scored a Winchester model 70 stealth in a 25 wssm. My plan is to make it into one kick tail antelope gun. What are you guys seeing for most accurate powder and bullet combos? I see that 4831 and the Hornady 117 seem to be the most popular. Let me hear your trials and tribulations with this caliber.

I killed many whitetail with 117 SST and IMR 4350. I would try RL-17 if I was to start again with load development. Most likely Ramshot Hunter 2nd.

It also shot the Speer 120 BTSP pretty well. Been shooting to many 6.5 and 7mm lately.

Loaded the 100 gr Hornady SP for 14 year old. RL-15 I think. He shot a white tail at 125 yards.

It was a Browning A-bolt.
