Barnes vortex is what I'd use if I didn't handload and it shot well in my rifle. Another option would be federal's premium line also with loaded with barnes bullets. But I'm a huge fan of barnes won't shoot anything bigger than a coyote with anything else.

I have a Tikka T3. I didn't have very good results with the Federal vital shoks with the barnes tsx bullet. I ended up using the Federal vital shoks with the nosler partition.
My 25-06rem shoots both Hornady 117gr SST and Federal Fusion 120gr equally well. Both would be good for deer/antelope/bear and if you limit your range and wait for a good broadside I wouldn't hesitate using either for elk or moose. I have a Tikka T3 featherlite s/s in 270win and it is the most accurate rifle I have ever owned or shot(hunting rifles), I didn't change a thing.
I like the Nosler 100 grain Partition in my 25-06. My 25-06 likes it too.

I've seen the 110 accubond hold up well to 257 weatherby velocity, it would be my first choice to try for an all around 25 cal bullet. 117 Sierra Gameking would likely be my second.
i was thinking of dumping my vanguard moa in 257 weatherby for a lft handed tikka in 25/06 but I was a litter leary on the 22 inch barrel. that weatherby is heavy over 7.5 compaired to the tikka 6.2. I have one tikka already in 270 wsm. how accurate is the 25/06
