I would start with 2, RL19 and H4350. I would keep H4831SC in mind as well. thats my opinion.

17 works well in the 25/06 for velocity gains, but accuracy sucked in both of mine.

I shoot a Rem 700 Varmint Special that I got in 1978. I use a 75 gr. Hornady V-Max bullets with IMR 4831. I have tryed other powders but IMR 4831 is a great powder for the 25-06

Re: 25-06 powder

Our guns liked the 4350 with that bullet shot real good
but we gave up that load for the 115 gr BT(I use Hybrid 100v and my buddy used rl19
Better BC and a little bit more weight to buck the wind.
Now all I shoot is the 75 gr vmax and 115 gr bT
My buddy shoot the same two bullets plus he shots the 85 gr bt

Re: 25-06 powder

IMR4831 and Hybrid100v are two more good choices. I have tried most Hodgdon and alliant powders in the 25-06 and there are no bad slow burning powders. the individual guns just like some better than others. N140 works good with the 75 grain bullets.
