Will we ever get bullets heavier than 120 grains in .25 cal?

I'm not talking anything crazy like 140-148 grain, but something like a 128 or 132 grain would be amazing in a .25-06.

If this has been discussed already (couldn't find it....) I'd enjoy a link.

Problem is most manufacturers use slow twist barrels for the 25 cals. If that changes, it might change the bullet offerings out there.

I'm not sure there are going to be any heavier weight bullets for the 25 caliber.
Yeah there are a fair amount of 25-06 out there, but not enough to warrent much research and development when compared to other calibers.
That coupled with most newer 25's having a 1:10 twist, and the older Savage 99 having a 1:14.

I was amazed Hornady bothered to develop their 110gr ELDX.

I am fairly impressed with what my 257wby's due with 120 partitions including longer ranges. I would love to see a 120ish gr accubond. The accubonds, partitions and interbonds are only bullets that can handle that speed on game from my experiance.
