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.

I don't hunt with a .25-06 but, have got friends that do and they all say the same thing you do. They say a faster expanding 115-120 gr. bullet works good. Hope you get a biggun this year.

My Ruger m77 hawkeye is the best shooting gun right out of the box I have ever owned. It's the 26 ' heavy barrel in 25-06. I dropped a very large bodied deer last year bang flop at 328 yards.

That would be 115 grain.

My buddy shot a really big body Mule deer with a 25-06 using 115 grain bullet. Not sure which brand or anything. He shot it 3 times. The another guy shot it with a 7 mag, then it finally went down. Another mule deer, a pretty big one also was shot with a 25-06, same bullet type, and it dropped like a rock !

Bullet placement is extremely important.
