Thanks for all the input. I loaded up some of the 120 Sierra BTHPs this morning with IMR4831 powder .005 off the lands. I also loaded some test loads with some 117 Hornady SSTs with RL22 these .010 off the lands. We'll see what happens with the first trip. I think I'll be buying some 100 gr. ballistic tips and Sierra Match Kings to try next. I have a feeling that's where I'll go with this rifle. It says that's what it wants. Thanks again! Info coming when I get to the range.

Keep us posted!!

I was inspired to load for my 25/06. I have 3 or 4 rifles to get to the range with, so I thought 1 more couldn`t hurt.

I know you said your looking to only take it out for a deer a lil bit but be careful, after shooting a deer 1 time with it you may be hooked.
The 25 is a great deer gun and although that rifle is heavy you only have to tote it to the stand. I have one in a Sendero and its heavy but very accurate.

I like the 115gr Nosler partition and the 115gr Nosler Ballistic Tip but have heard good things about the Accubonds.

It's contagious. It tell you it's contagious. Be aware!
