25-06 Loads

I have a Win 70 25-06 24" factory barrel with a Leupold 4.5X14X50 scope. I want to use the 115 gr. Nosler Partition bullet. Max shots on Georgia whitetail deer will be 400 yds using a rest. Looking for information on handloads. Thanks

    I have a 25-06 Sendero & in this gun I tried 115 Part. & 120
    Part. My rifle favors 120 Part with a healthy dose of RL25
    & chron. 3,304 FPS. I would try both bullets and I also get
    great results with 115 Triple Shocks with RL22 @ 3,250 FPS.
    I am confident with these bullets out to 500 yards when
    shooting Whitetails/Mule Deer & smaller. The .25-06 has also
    done well for Ar. Tuskers up close. Over 500 Yards I prefer
    my .300 & after reading Goodgroupers results I will try
    180 & 200 Accubonds for that.

    My two cents: I really like the Nosler BT in 100 grain. Over 57 gr of RL-22 I get a consistent 3400 fps. Zeroed at 250 yds, it drops about 12.5" at 400 yds. I couldn't get the 115 or 120 grainers to group very well, so I sacrificed a few hundred footpounds of downrange thump for better accuracy.

    I have had great success in the past with my 1/4 bore using a Nosler 115 BT in a federal case over 56gr. RL22 w/ a WLR primer. I'm averaging 3270 fps cutting one ragged hole at 100 yd. in a 5-shot group for my hunting load.The longest shot on a whitetail with that load was 672 yd. The deer went 30 yd. and piled up deader than fried chicken. I just switched to a 115 Berger VLD for groundhogs and target shooting. This load is extremely accurate.

    I'll second that of bucknutz - 54 of H4831 - you cannot get enough in there to hurt anything. It shoots fantastic. Same load can be used with the 115 Ballistic Tip. Best lengths for me are TTL - 2.484 with a MOAL or 3.245.
    Good luck.
