Back in the day the 25/06 had the same growing pains.
I've had several clients over the years show up with a very nice custom wild cat who suddenly discovered they'd been separated from their ammo in transit or forgot to pack it.
Once we had a pack horse go nuts scattering things all over the mountain for mile or more resulting in the same thing.
That's one reason that I always encourage clinets to bring a backup rifle in a caliber we can come up with ammo for in a pinch should the need arrive.
There are some phenomenal wildcats out there but none so special as to be able to actually replace factory rounds the the vast majority of our needs.
Some though are just too damned cool not to want to own.
