    Do these generally shooting good in a factory remington barrel ?

    Gunshop down the road has a couple of boxes -so i wanted to get opinion before spending $28.

    If you are talking about a 25-06, Remington says that comes with a 1-10 twist.
    Berger recommends a 1-10 twist for that bullet so "it should work".

    They shot pretty good for me in a .25-06 Sendero. I tried 50.0-51.5gn of RL22 and Rem 9.5M primers. Best 3-shot groups were 50.0 & 51.0 gn @ .387" & .390", respectively. Average velocity for these two was, 2951 & 3044 fps.
    I'd say go ahead and git'em. I like them and will probably try them on deer and varmints. JohnnyK.

    berger vld's in 25-06

    They have worked for me in a Ruger KM77VT 25-06.Should work in a Rem. for deer or antelope or varmits. My longest shot on rockchuck was 1203 and it did the job,Vhit N165 will really get the preformance up with out exessive pressure.
