6.5

Three of us with two 25/06 rifles got three chucks at 1100 yards one day. My wife and I killed two with my 25/06 and a friend killed one with his.

My 25/06 has a 30" barrel and the bullet I use in it is the 100 gr Ballistic tip and the powder of choice "in mine" is 54 grs of H4350.

Re: Question for D.C on 25-06

I use a Unertl 24X 2" and also a Leupold LR 30MM tube 8 1/2X to 25 X.

The 15X unertl 2" Varminter works real nice also.

The BEST optics I have ever looked through have been on the 2" Unertls
