If ever there was pure whitetail poison, the 25-06 definitely makes the very short list of ideal rounds. I shoot 110gr Accubonds and routinely achieve sub 1/2-minute groups if I do my part. There is very little guesswork required on the part of the shooter at distances most would feel probably border on the insane.

It's a fantastic round.

25-06 is a great round. I had great luck with the 120 gr. Winchester Positive Expanding Points. Accurate and dropped every deer I shot in their tracks.

I love my 25! I shoot a Rem 700 Classic and its killed more deer in the last 14 years in NC and SC than most people will ever see. I recently switched to factory Rem Ultra core-loks (green/gold box) NOT the green/yellow.

I will say mine will stomp the daylights out of you. Gun kicks like a mule. Its not me because I have had other 25-06's that did not kick plus other calibers that were pleasant to shoot. I have buddies shooting 300 win mags and will not shoot my 25.lol. I don't know why, but its simply one the hardest recoiling guns I've ever shot......but its worth it. lol. I could not recommend a 25 if they were all like mine, if your wanting lighter recoil. I would recommend the 260 rem.

I'm a new believer in the 25-06. A friend had a scope come loose while Elk hunting last week and reached for the guides 25-06. Dropped an Elk in his tracks at 150 yds.

i am sure you realize a 25-06 if just a 270 necked down to .257. recoil would be equal to a 270 if the weight of bullet was equal. since the 25-06 shoots a lighter bullet, it would kick ever so slightly less.

260 remington or 7mm08 may be a better choice

I agree and the25-06 is more than a 200yrds gun

Yes it is. Slight difference in the 270. The 270 is just a tad bit more gun. I Have shot Mule deer with my 270 out to 325 yrds.The 25-06 will do it to if sighted in right.

Ive shot one for years.Started out shooting Core Locks and killed deer but they always ran a ways then died.Switched to 117 grain Ballistic Silvertips,Dead in their tracks with massive exit wound.25.06 is an awesome deer round with range to boot.
