117 grain .257 diameter is a good all around choice for reloading. Factory ammo probably ranges from 117 to 120 grs. for that particular weight range of 25-06 ammo. Pointed tip [spitser] and boat-tail base will shoot the flattest...Hornady, Speer, Sierra, Nosler, Remington, Winchester, Barnes, etc. all offer bullets for reloading in .257 caliber. My two favorites are Sierra and Hornady but other makes are well liked also...reloading manuals are an invaluable aid to reload safely and accurately...good luck... I like 75 and 87 grain bullets for varmints and 100, 115, 117, 120 boat tail spire point for deer.
