25-06 Rem 115 Berger VLD's

I am about to purchase a 25-06 in a Rem Sendero. I was wondering if any one has info on this caliber and bullet combo? I was wondering what velocities people are getting?

Thanx Joe

    My best accuracy (.390") was with 51.0gn of RL22 and 9.5M primers. Velocity averaged 3044fps. I went up to 51.5gn and velocity was 3062fps but accuracy went over 1". JohnnyK.

    I have 2 loads worked up with the 115g VLD's for my rem 700, 24" shilen barreled 25-06.

    50g Rl-22, win case, cci 200, 3.352" (at the lands) 3025fps, 1-2" groups at 400 yards from a bench.

    58.5g Retumbo, win case, WLR, 3.352", 3275fps, 2-3" groups at 400 yards.

    Now I am not sure to go with a 25-06, 6.5x55, 6.5x284 or 7mm08. The gun is for my kids and nephew. This has been a lot tougher choice than my 7Rem Mag for me

    I am shooting 50 grains of H4350 in my Weatherby Ultralight into 1/2" groups at 100 yards when I played with the seating depth. I shoot a Browning Single Shot in 25-06 but haven't tried the Bergers in it yet as It loves the 110 grain Nosler Accubond and kills like lightning. For a young person, I highly recomend the 25-06 with 100 grain bullets and have taken numerous mule deer with my single shot with that combo before switching to the Accubond several years ago. I think a Sendero would be too heavy for a kid to pack. I have a Model 7 Remington with KS stock in 7-08 that is a tackdriver and weights only 6 pounds, and my 25-06 Weatherby will shoot with my Browning if I really hunt for the right load and it weights maybe 6.5 pounds. The B78 has long been my hunting rifle as it weighs less than 8 pounds. I love shooting the heavy barrel rifles at the range but on a hunt where I usually shoot only 1 shot I prefer the lightweights!

    That's pretty darned good. What twist rate is your Shilen barrel?
