Re: stay 25.06 or go 243??
270 is a nice hunting round to be sure! I was at K-Mart yesterday, and got another box of winchester .22lr. Looking at the other ammo on the shelf, 243, 30-30, 308, 270, 30-06, 7mmRM, and 300WM. Of all of them the 308 and 7mmRM had quite a few more choices on the shelf. Where you live things may well be different. It seemed odd to me, to not see the 25-06 on the shelf.
/shrug, I am glad that i reload!
