Re: 25-06 opinions??
I like the 115 vld right now in my 25-06. There are several good antelope-deer sized game bullets in 25 cal. If I had to hunt elk with my 25-06, I'd probably go with a 100 grain barnes or swift scirocco. At 3400 fps out of my 26" barrel it could take elk with a good shot angle to 400 yards or a little more if I had too. A 270, 280, or 30-06 are all progressively better elk cartridges on the 06 case. For deer and antelope out to 700 yards the 25 will do the job if the wind isn't too bad.
