.25-06 and 115gr NBT

Can anyone shoot me some load information for this combo. I have limited number of bullets available right now, and I want to shave some corners and see what others have found to work nicely. Thanks.

Re: .25-06 and 115gr NBT

I had good results using RL-22 out of ours. I loaded it up using the same 56.5grs as I dump under the partitions. The OAL is 3.25 in my gun for best accuracy. Primers-WIN-WLR and Win. cases.

This is a max load so please back off and work up slow.

Good Luck,
Mike / Tx

Re: .25-06 and 115gr NBT

I used this bullet A LOT out of my old 25-06, it shot very well with 53.5g RL-22. 48g of IMR-4350 also shot very well. 55g of IMR-7828, 56g of H-1000 all shot very well for me. These were all loaded with Remington nickel brass, 3.250". Those loads were 1/2" to 3/4" at 100 yards, and 4-5 inches at 525 yards. I have taken many coyotes at 500-600 and 1 buck at 600 with this bullet. It has always fully penetrated every deer I have shot with it. I hope you find a good load and use it.

53 grns of IMR7828 is the best I've used w/ that bullet w/ R22 and H1000 coming in close behind.

Thanks reloader and remingtonman 2506. I have 7828, RE 22 and 4350 so I'll give them all a try. Thanks again.

Re: .25-06 and 115gr NBT

My first post on this site [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]I sold both my 243 and my 25-06 and built a 6mm-06. My favorite 25-06 load was 117gr Hornady interlocks with 56gr R-22. With the 115 NBT's I liked 49gr IMR 4350. The reason I favored the interlocks was because they held up better on the up close shots without making a mess of the deer like the NBT's do at close range. 4831 is also a great powder for the 25-06---2MG

Re: .25-06 and 115gr NBT

I have not used this bullet but have used Berger 115gr in a Ruger M77 Vt. the load that workes for me is 58.5 gr VHIT N165 Fed GM115 primer in converted LC62 national match brass, weight selected 1/2% and match prepped.Velocity= 3300fps and 1/2 moa. this was good for 1072yd& a 1203yd chuck shoots. this load was safe in my gun!! proceed slowly! N 165 seems to be slower than The VHIT manual indicates.I had no pressure signs and have loaded these cases several times.
