Yup, tried and tested it, (Viht.N160) but it wasn’t great in my rifle.
I found much better results using IMR4831, however with that now being in short supply, I’m trialling Viht.N560 and it’s looking very good.

I've used it in a .270 WCF with 140 grain bullets and found it a very good and friendly powder. Although, my rifles are all 24" barrels and un-moderated, with some muzzle flash. So as your .25-06 is based on the same parent .30-06 case as my .270 WCF was I think it'll be an excellent powder choice.

Thanks for the input.
Will do a bit more digging but will have a look at the n 560 as well.

I think you’ll find doing so worthwhile for the 110gn bullet. It’s a good bullet and performs well.

Also the 100gn Sierra Prohunter, currently I use IMR4350 with that one, brilliant on hinds, but eventually I’ll have to switch that powder too. But, not sure yet which one. It may well be a different one than N560, don’t yet know.
