I like the Hornady superformance ammo with the GMX bullet
with that said just because I and my rifle like that round doesn't mean you or your rifle will
I suggest getting several different types and brands of ammo and see which one your rifle likes

Thanks Everyone for your help. I think I'm going to start with the Barnes 100gr TTSX and see what that does for me, I'll end up reloading soon, I just need something for this years Deer Hunt.

I would take a long look at Winchester combined tech ballistic tip. These things are amazing I reload this bullet in my 257 wby but the Winchester shoot so good in 243 and 25-06 I wont reload for them. Good luck.

This. I've had excellent results with Winchester 115gr. CBT's as well. I don't reload for 25-06 either because the things shoot so well out of my rifle.
