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

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.

    100smk are rocking here! h-4831 55.5,fed match primers are producing 6" 500yd groups. 110 accubonds would be worth a deer lost due to smk's.

    I am using AA 2700 53 gr and getting 3500 fps with the 100 gr BT, but I am afraid to use them on deer as they will blow up on contact inside say 200 yds. Using 54 gr aa2700 with the 85 gr BT, I am getting 3700 fps and laser flat trajectory. Both rounds shoot under 1/2" at 100 yds. I have never shot them at targets past 100 yds and seen my group. I shot them at a 500 m range, but when I fired the third shot, I got stung 4 times on my head by some wasps I had not seen over my head. I have no clue how good a group I shot, but I hit the steel ram 3 for 3.
