I think I found the load I've been looking for.  It's only a 3-shot group but I'll take it.

Looking good, now put 10 in there to really see how you can do.

That'll be this weekend.  I didn't load enough rounds of this batch to do more than 3.  I'm guessing with 10 shots...that hole is gonna get a lot bigger. 

This load was a last minute "what the hell...lets see what happens" idea.  I was starting to think the 25-06 needed to go in for some stock or barrel work.

Nice group, if available you might want to see what you get at 200-250yds.

Can't shoot paper at 200, but we usually set up 1/2 gallon jugs at that range or more.

What pyro and everyone else said... 
Barnes lists that load as slightly under max and ~3300 fps, so if the rifle is actually that precise (with a larger group,) I'd say you've found a great load.
BTW, not everyone can shoot a good group like that, even with the best of everything. Way to go!

This was shot off a Lead Sled so at least I know the gun/ammo combo is on.  I'm not sure I could put a group like that together off of the bi-pod...I'll try this weekend though.
