25-06 Loads needed with 115gr Berger Hunting VLD

I am not having any luck with the search function.

Has anyone worked with the 115 gr Berger VLD Hunting bullet in 25-06?

I got email from Cabelas offering me the employee discount so while I was looking for something that I might need, I found something that I wanted

I picked up a box of the VLD's in 25 caliber and now I am looking for ideas on a staring point.

I have 4831SC, Varget, and Reloader 17, but am fine with purchasing additional varieties as necessary.

Thanks in advance!

Correction made to post as I had inadvertantly posted 168 gr. It is actually 115gr. Thanks for the assist.

    DOH!

    I had the 30-06 on my mind.

    You are absolutely correct sir. 115gr.

    I will try and edit the info......

    I am not able to get the LRH search engine to work well for me but using Google I found an old post that Johnnyk made where he gave this as a possible load.

    115 gr Berger VLD
    51.0 gr RL22
    Rem cases
    Rem 9.5M
    Average velocity: 3062 (3-shot; 3086/3054/3048)
    Accuracy: .390
    "


    How different are RL22 and RL17?

    H4831sc and 115 VLD
    51gr H4831 (slight touching in lands)
    53gr H4831sc (3125fps)
    53 grains H-4831 with a Fed- 210m primer (3150fps)—ES 14fps-
    50.5gr H4831sc (3028fps)—slow but accurate


    RL-22
    52.0gr RL-22 (3200fps)

    I ended up using H4831 and 51.5-52.0 (unsure because the load is taped inside the ammo box and at friends house) I put together a savage 110 and McGowen barrel and bedded and stock work. This rifle shot remarkably awesome with 115 vlds.
    Hope some of this helps...oyea a pic of the rifle too ( I am proud of how it turned out!!)




    Just start low please and work up...Hope these helps

    that load I suggested was cutting pretty holes in my steel plate at 225yds of which my calibers usually wouldn't. I'm very pleased with the 25-06 performance. Enjoy
