Re: 25-06 Rem for LR hunting?
I'd punch it out 25/06 A.I, and run the 115 Bergers, or any other 100gr bullet at warp speed. Yeah, we're in a game of high BC bullets, but speed will get you there as well. Anything coyote/deer sized within 1K would be a stud to shake off a well placed .257" pill... it just ain't going to happen. You'll have fun!
My best friend has killed a bunch of elk with his stock CDL 25/06, and my brother has killed stuff with ours as well. We've had a blast shooting them at steel from 500-1000 with the plain old SGKs.
