Made the decision to thin the herd out, getting rid of a number of rifles and going to use the 25-06 as my do it all CF rifle. I've got a Sako Finnbear 25-06 and today I ordered a Kimber Montana 25-06. Assuming the Montana shoots worth a damn, they'll be my sunny day/rainy day huntin' combo. Been pondering this move for some time, feel pretty good about it. Tonight I tip my drink to the 25-06.

Sounds like you've made a very wise choice.

75-grain V-Max's, 100-grain TTSX, 120-grain Partitions, you can conquer the lower 48, with aplomb.

Several powders work, but I wouldn't stray too far from IMR 4831, and H4350. I'm sure others will offer combo's that work as well.

Solid choice.

Another one that uses the 25-06. For over 30 years, and
harvested at least that many whitetails, with this cal.

My pick this year is the Federal Premium 100 gr. Nosler Ballistic TIP.

Accurate and deadly.

Good deal! I love the 25/06 and I aplaud you for trimming the herd and going lean and mean.

Hi Techsan,

If you're going to go with a .25-06, don't go too far. If you do you might find out that you will never need another rifle.


Best of luck to you,

Next time I draw an Antelope tag I plan on using an 80gr TTSX for it. Last one was with a 117gr Sierra BT. Kinda trying both ends of the spectrum.....
