    87gr Sierra SPT is a very fine bullet with 52grs IMR4350. You may wish to go with H4350 as the grains are finer, and they bought out IMR
    hope it helps

    I use Reloader/Elcho 17 for all my 25-06 loads. I've not tried 87 grain bullets but I had cracking results with 85 grain NBT (v). The most accurate loads were at the max stated for 87 grain bullets 54.5 grains. Having said that they were only marginally better than those with 54.0 grains.

    Load data for 25-06 and reloader 17

    Alliant Powder - Reloader's Guide

    If reloader 17 works for you, try to source Elcho 17 it's the same powder but only costs 55 per kilo as apposed to reloader 17 at 36 per pound.

    As an aside I tried the 75 V-max but could not get them to group very well.
