Hey guys, I got a new rem700 LR in 25-06 and have put Leupold vx3 on it. I have put 40 rounds through it, a box of Barnes vortex 100gr and hornady 117 gr And it doesn’t seem to like the vortex very much and hornady is very inconsistent at 100yds. I know I haven’t tried all brands just trying to see what has worked for other owners of this gun. Thanks in advance for the help!

I have two quarter bores, but have always gotten, by far, the best accuracy with hand loads. I've tried some Remington's, but accuracy was far from acceptable. A third rifle, a heavy fluted barreled Savage 112V was capable of extreme accuracy well beyond 500 yards, but I sold it for a lighter rifle. But all three rifles liked loads towards the maximum end of the data.
