Re: 25-06 or 308
Stick with the 25-06. Mine is fun to shoot, shoots great, and does a number on deer. Thumped a "half rack" buck yesterday at 380 yards with my 25-06 pushing Berger VLD's. Recoil almost doesn't exist and it is flat shooting. 257 bullet offerings from deer destroyers down to crow/groundhog vaporizers. Mine shoots 75gr Vmax, 85gr Nos BT, 100 BT, 117 Sierra, and 115 VLD's to the same point (within 3/8"). On a hunt, I'll stick a few Vmaxes in my pocket in case a crow gets a little too mouthy...
Before you change anything on your gun, how does it shoot now?
