Howa .25-06 accuracy

Hey I'm new to the forum so please bear with me. I have a Howa 1500 .25-06 that I ordered as a barreled action, it has a hogue synthetic stock w/ the full length aluminum bedding block. Should be a pretty accurate combo for the money from everything I've read and heard. My results so far arent terrible, around 2" @ 100 yards shooting off a bag. I've free-floated the barrel. I did the barrel break-in just like howa says to do it. The only ammo I've tried so far is 100gr Rem. core-lokts. I want to know if anyone can give me some good advice on what other factory loads may shoot better out of this gun? It has a 22" barrel (I know thats a tad short for a 25-06) and a 1:10 twist. Could it be that a slightly heavier bullet be more accurate through a 1:10? It will be used to hunt 100-200lb whitetails in NC, so anything 100-120gr should be sufficient... I think.
