I think your pushing the bullet to fast. quit trying to outrun the 257 weatherby. lower the speed to 3600 and see how it shoots. Accuracy is far better than speed.

Re: The .25-06 and .25-06 Improved By J.C. Munnell

I have a 0.5MOA load with the 75gr V-max at around 4000fps and this is mainly a 0-350 and no time to turn turrets varmint gun. So I wanted a flat trajectory but the 90gr blitz would help with holding for wind. I tried slower loads with the VV n560 but that combination does not work in my gun. Have you shot the 90 gr blitz king?

No I have not tried a 90gr. I use a nosler 115bt for deer and antelope. It has a better BC. I have a 27.5" barrel so I get good speed from it. How long a barrel are you using? My rifle will shoot the 115 nosler 5/8" @ 200yds. very accurate. BUT I cannot get it to shoot the 110 accubond at all. It "patterns " the paper not group. lol. As they say, some guns will not shoot all bullets. Maybe try the 100 grain bullets.

For me,the 85gr BT Nosler shoots the best out of a M700 sporter over 56gr of RL19. It goes 1/2 to 3/4 MOA @ 400yds off a Caldwell BR front rest and Bald Eagle back bag. Not too shabby for a bedded sporter. I'm kind of surprised there aren't more folks using RL19 with the middle weight pills. I've also had good performance with IMR 4350 under the 100gr projectiles.

my best performance has been with imr 4831 and the R19. thats shooting the 115 thru my 25 ackley. The Vvori powders interest me. The lighter bullets 87 100, may shoot tight but dont holdup to wind very well out past 350yds. thats what the charts show. the 115 is the best for 400-600 yd hunting. Longrange hunting is not a contest who can do it with the lightest bullet.

How about some 110gr AccuBonds? I like what I see so far with the H4831SC. Not too shabby for new brass in a breeze. Got tired of waiting on the wind and cut the session short.

I wish I could make the 110 accubonds shoot like that! Maybe I will try again.
