.25-06 loads using 100 gr SMK and RL 22

anyone using 100 gr. SMK and RL 22? want to start using this for long range deer and yotes. have been shooting 75 gr. v-maxes on pd's and yotes but the winds blow them around alot and want to try a higher bc bullet. if anyone has a good pet load that they could share that would be great. thanks,

Re: .25-06 loads using 100 gr SMK and RL 22

My rifle had issues with any Sierra bullet when I first tried them. I called the info line and they recommended me trying the following combo,

52grs of IMR-4350 and CCI BR Primers. I use winchester cases.

Well I figured that since I had everything but the primers it wasn't going to cost too much to give it a whirl. I seated them to 3.150 for my rifle and they shot unbelievable at 200 yds.

this is a near max if not max load. Please use caution and back down a couple of grs and work up to it. You rifle and mine are totally different.

Good Luck,

If you're going to shoot deer how about using a hunting bullet. Try the 100 grain Ballistic tip or the 110 gr Accubond. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

i used this combination for 2 full seasons, which was about 40 deer for me at the time. worked great from roe deer up to 19stone red deer on chest and neck shots. i don't think you'll be dissappointed.

ddubas,
I too use 57.0gr of RL22, but with either the 100gr NBT or Barnes Triple Shock. I shoot a .25-06 Rem Sendero and this load is max in my rifle also. I get 1/4" groups with either bullet and just over 3300fps. A whitetail simply can't stand either load. Good luck. JohnnyK.

I'd like to ammend my sloppy reply, above. Fact is, my bullet of choice is also the 100 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tip. A legitimate big game bullet that has crossover application on large predators. LB
