antelope hunt

I shoot a doe last week with a 2506 and was surprised how much damage it did on the exit

Congrats.

What bullet? Velocity? Range? Where did you hit her?

Sounds like you did well then.

I've noticed that none of the game I shot that fell dead worried nearly as much about the load or caliber as we do here though HA!

Many years ago I carried a 25-06 Ruger #1 as my "Antelope Gun" and had very similar results shooting 120gr hornady's.

Re: antelope hunt

Out to about 500-600yds it's a good caliber on deer sized game.

The only problem is that there's a short selection of good High BC 25 cal bullets.
