25-06 is a bad round. I believe it's one of the fastest rounds out right now.

.270 is a great gun for up to 300 yards. plenty of punch and relatively low cost to shoot.

One YOU can shoot effectively at that range.

thanks for advice. I currently shoot .270 and passed on 10 pointer this year at 200 yds but after reading posts on here I gained confidence and got a second change at 210 yds and dropped him. I was debating on another .270 or 7mag???

a 270 will cover alot more than 300 yds. i personally have 2 kills with a 270 over 400 yds.
the best caliber is the one that you shoot well. just don't fall into the "if it ain't a magnum, it ain't sh*t" trap. there is no need for a magnum rifle.

Anything with a 25 in it is good...I would prefer in this order...

.25
.257 WTHBY MAG
.25-06

.25 is the flatest calliber out there right now...I personaly shot a Weatherby Mark V in a .257 WTHBY MAG...Love it but I really want a .25

IMO
