    RL25 works well in my standard 6.5-06. Might be worth a try in yours.

    I have owned several and have been around several more. 58-59 Retumbo with a fed 215 works wonderful. A 210 works good at times as well but the velocity is quite a bit slower. About the same load of Ramshot Magnum works well too.
