Any good 25-06 loads?

I'm developing a load for 25-06 and I have some ideas of what I'm going to try out. I'm just wandering what a lot of you are using. What powder, and what grain or type of bullet you're using.

I'm going to try some IMR 4350 and 120 gr bullets.

GOOD start with IMR 4350! Mine likes the 120 gr bullets but likes 100 gr Nosler BT's even better! My gun is a M98 Mauser rebarreled with a 26" Shilen barrel. Good luck.

I've also had good luck with 4350. I use 120 gr. Nosler Partitions and 100 gr. Ballistic tips. The 100 gr. load is 3300fps at the muzzle and very accurate. I've taken 500 yard shots at coyotes with confidence with it.

My Sendero 25-06 likes the following:
100 grn Seirra HPBT, WLR primer, 50.0 grns imr4350, 3.250, remington brass.
87 grn Seirra Spire pt, WLR primer, 51 grns imr4831, 3.250 remington brass.

These are accurate loads, not max loads. Obviously you are responsible for checking that I did not make a typo or something.

Thanks, Folks. Looks like IMR 4350 will be the first powder that I'll try out.

My regular load is 120gr Sierra HPBT Gameking with 49.5gr of 4350. That goes a tick over 3000fps out of my Winchester M70.
