The old Speer number nine manual shows a 87gr at 3623 with58 grs bullet of Imr 4831 and 3386 with 55 grs of Imr4831 with the 100 gr remember a mono bullet allows you too step down in weight the 25-284 should shine with the 90 gr absolute you will get a big velocity gain with that bullet over a conventional cup and core unless you plan on shooting past 400 yds I would take a look at the 117 gr absolute if you have the right twist I think off the top of my head at least a 1-8.5
I don't think they make a 117 in the .257. For the .264 they have one

Yes sir they do it’s a fairly new bullet requires a 1-8.5 twist personally I wouldn’t shoot anything heavier than that out of a quarter bore that me if I need a heavier bullet I would move too the next cal that 117 absolute should get you some good velocities being I’m shooting 124 gr 123 gr and 131 gr hammer 6.5 bullets I’ll stick with the 90 gr absolute in the 25 cal
