    Can anyone shoot me some load information for this combo. I have limited number of bullets available right now, and I want to shave some corners and see what others have found to work nicely. Thanks.

    I had good results using RL-22 out of ours. I loaded it up using the same 56.5grs as I dump under the partitions. The OAL is 3.25 in my gun for best accuracy. Primers-WIN-WLR and Win. cases.

    This is a max load so please back off and work up slow.

    Good Luck,

    I used this bullet A LOT out of my old 25-06, it shot very well with 53.5g RL-22. 48g of IMR-4350 also shot very well. 55g of IMR-7828, 56g of H-1000 all shot very well for me. These were all loaded with Remington nickel brass, 3.250". Those loads were 1/2" to 3/4" at 100 yards, and 4-5 inches at 525 yards. I have taken many coyotes at 500-600 and 1 buck at 600 with this bullet. It has always fully penetrated every deer I have shot with it. I hope you find a good load and use it.

    53 grns of IMR7828 is the best I've used w/ that bullet w/ R22 and H1000 coming in close behind.

    Thanks reloader and remingtonman 2506. I have 7828, RE 22 and 4350 so I'll give them all a try. Thanks again.

    My first post on this site /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gifI sold both my 243 and my 25-06 and built a 6mm-06. My favorite 25-06 load was 117gr Hornady interlocks with 56gr R-22. With the 115 NBT's I liked 49gr IMR 4350. The reason I favored the interlocks was because they held up better on the up close shots without making a mess of the deer like the NBT's do at close range. 4831 is also a great powder for the 25-06---2MG

    I have not used this bullet but have used Berger 115gr in a Ruger M77 Vt. the load that workes for me is 58.5 gr VHIT N165 Fed GM115 primer in converted LC62 national match brass, weight selected 1/2% and match prepped.Velocity= 3300fps and 1/2 moa. this was good for 1072yd& a 1203yd chuck shoots. this load was safe in my gun!! proceed slowly! N 165 seems to be slower than The VHIT manual indicates.I had no pressure signs and have loaded these cases several times.

    I'll second the hornady case, fed 210 primer, hornady 117 btsp and 56 gr RL22. Fast and pretty accurate. Each gun likes what it likes however.
