Welcome aboard Latham

I don't shoot the 25-06 but someone on here will probably have some data

just curious where do you hunt red and fallow deer?

I don't know if will do you much good, but my wife's Savage 110 in 25-06 shot .75 moa out of the box using a 100gr. Speer SPBT. I used new Remington brass, CCI primers and 50gr. of IMR4350. It was a very nice surprise. I am now hoping for similar results while working up a 120gr. load. I don't remember what the speed was off the top of my head but the load was right in the middle of my ladder.

I had the best performance in my 2506 and 2506Ackley Improved with RL22. Velocity was excellent and accuracy was reallly good.

Take care using someone else's data in your rifle. My rifle likes H4831sc & IMR 4350. I don't use 100gr bullet's anymore, a bit to soft for me and do to much damage. My bullet is the 117gr Hornady spire point. I don't let point deformation bother me unless it's really bad. Have never seen where it really matter's as much as most people think. It's a hunting cartridge, not a match cartridge.

With the 117gr bullet deer I've shot generally walk off about 20' and fall down. Not the spactular killer the 100gr is but the bullet doesn't tear things up I want to eat either.

Browning A-Bolt, 22" barrel, RP Brass, F210M or CCI primers, 117 SST, and RL22, I will not post my load since it is over max, but start at 54 grs. and work up from there, I am about .015"  off the rifling.  This load is super accurate and gives good penetration.  For a 100 gr. load, I have shot several, 100 gr. loads, the Speer 100 gr. SPBT I found to be a little to explosive for my likng on small Texas whitetails and Follow deer.  the 100 gr. Speer hot core did better.  But for a 100 gr. I now shot the Barnes TSX at about .060" off.  All with RL22, book max is about 57.5-58 grs. for the 100 gr. bullets, Barnes says 55.5 for the TSX.  My A-bolt is over that but this rifle seems to like a little over book, For the TSX I would start at about 54.5 and work up, for the other 100 gr. bullets at about 56.5-57 and work up from there.  All of these bullets have given great accuracy.  The 117 SST I have used to kill a bunch of deer, but almost all chest side or frontal shots and they have all dropped in their tracks. For shoulder shots, the few that I did to test, it did just fine on as well drilling through the shoulder.   If you are going to do all shoulder shots, the Barnes 100 would be hard to beat, I just don't know if I would use it for just chest shots, I have only shot one deer with it that way, and although it performed fine, I would probably feel better doing shoulder shots with it.  Others may have more experience with it.  The Partitions in 115 are also hard to beat and with it and other soft points, I've never had a problem with accuracy and the soft lead deforming to much, Dave

Funny, I have shot deer with about every major and minor caliber, the 25-06 seems to drop them quicker than just about any standard caliber.

I have had good luck with a speer 100 gr. sp stoked with 53 grains of IMR 4350.It gives me about 3300 fps and I have been using this load for about 30 years now without any problems.I shoot a win. 70 24"tube,cci 200 primers and overall cartridge length is what will fit in the magizine.With all hand loads please start below by 10 % and work up from there.

nobody would happen to have a load using imr4895 would they, because i use this in my 22-250 and it would save me from buying a new lot of powder

IMR4895 puts you at a handicap as far as velocity.Sure you could make it work but you will get excessive pressures before you get up to the desired velocity.In the 25 if you want to anchor them on the spot,go for a bone busting load.Something like the TSX tipped. Then shoot to bust the shoulders.Them fast light constructed bullets ruin a lot of meat.
