NOt very many people shoot a 120 grain 25-06 bullet, so that is why they get the idea it is a better round because they are shooting a 100 grain or lower therefore they are getting a flatter shot but sacrificing energy. I see your point and thanks for posting it hpdi200, but what about a 300 WSM or 270 WSM, as far a data concerns arent they at the top of the list as far as flattest shooting while also keep good energy levels.

Yes they are very much so,but I was just comparing the 2 i posted on ,cause this guy said he would put his 25-06 up against my 270 any time.Not saying anything bad about anyones gun,I just hate to see people getting on here and saying things like he did,when obviously he did'nt know the facts about his gun or mine.

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.
A 270 Cal. is a faster shooting gun,and a flatter shooting gun than the 25-06.so the 25-06 is not the fastes gun out there
I have to disagree with you, 200. I'll put my .25-06 up against your .270 any day as far as trajectory is concerned.

ok look at this . A 120 grain 25-06 bullet and a 130 grain 270 bullet.The closest i could find to compare.I will list the 270 first in numbers then the 25-06. Here is the long range trajectory. 270 at 100 yrds 1.5 25-06 1.6. at 150 yards they are the same at 1.4 at 200yards they both are at zero. at 250 yrds they both are at- 2.8 .at 300 yrds the 270 at - 7.0 the 25-06 at -7.2 at 400 yrds the 270 at -20.9 the 25-06 at -21.4 at 500 yrds the 270 at -43.3 the 25-06 at -44.1. Short range the 270 out performs it a little also. ok Energy (ft- lbs) 270 at muzzle 2702 ,the 25-06 2382 .at 100 yards 270 2225 ,25-06 1985 .At 200 yards 270 ,1818 ,25-06 1644. at 300 yards 270 1472 , 25-06 1351. At 400 yards 270 at1180. 25-06 at 1100. ok and at 500 yards 270 at 936. the 25-06 at 887. If you don't beleive me go to a ballistics chart and compare the same. So how can you say the 25- 06 out performs the 270. when it does'nt.Not knocking anyone gun.They both are good,but what you said is'nt true.
Less than an inch difference at 500 yards??? They're pratically dead even!! And don't lecture me on not knowing the facts, Spike!
Sure I am a spike on here big deal.Does that mean you know more ,apparently not. Who was right ,who was wrong,I wasn't arguing i was just stating a fact,and the fact is you were wrong!!!!!Deal with it and grow up !!!

the better question is best caliber for enviroment because there are dozens of very good calibers to kill deer, but certain calibers would work better in hardwoods and thick stuff as opposed to hunting wide open flat land, my personal preference is 25.06, its a very fast consistent bullet if hand loaded with the 117 grain boat tail and inflicts a quick clean kill.
