I just traded for one this week, but I've not shot it or even found any ammo for it yet. I was wondering if any of you are using them for deer and how you like it? Any cons other than ammo price/availabilty?
Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

I shoot a Ruger No.1 in 25-06, same loads as B&C. Never had one move out of its tracks with farthest shot at 110 yards. The 25-06 is one heck of a deer cartridge.

Its not what happens in life, but how you react to it that matters.

Federal Premium 100 grain Ballistic Tips have worked for me. Only 2 does but both were DRT. Handloads work great too.

My buddy hunts with a 25.06. He killed a nice 8 pt on New Years Eve with it. Ran maybe 30 yards.
Life is short. Hunt when you can. Enjoy your friends.

Welcome to the TNDEER site . I have a 25/06 built on a NIKO Golden Eagle 7000 action that my son will get to use as I am putting my old Redfield 3X9 wildfield scope on it for him to use , I sold my Remington 7400 automatic rifle to my nephew who was useing it . The brothers son wanted a new Nikon scope .
