A couple yrs back...a friend of mine was raving about his new deer gun, a .25-06. Now that he's lost 2 deer I don't hear anything about his .25-06. Ive never lost any game with my 30-06.

There is not a deer on the planet that can't be killed with a 25.06. The shooter was most definitely the problem.

I’m about 4 yrs late to this party but appreciate the info on this thread. I own a Ruger M77 in a 25-06 and it’s a shooting machine on white tails. I’ve never missed or lost a single deer with it. I’ve got a .308 TC venture as well and am debating between which to take for elk.
