25/06

I'm shooting a Tikka in a 25/06. I use this rifle for rats to mule deer. I'm using the 115 VLD Berger for everything. You may think it's over kill for rats, but it's a kick in the butt and great practice. Oh, the bc is .523. Good luck.

Rest assured the 125gr berger will stabilize in the 1-10" twist or berger wouldn't make them.

Bullets are designed w/a certain amount of baring surface -the weight has less to do w/ it.
The 125gr wildcat does fine ,and some have report good success w/ the 130's w/a 1-10" twist rate.

25-06 owner since 1980 !!= They're great -one of the early high-performance rounds that still kicks butt today.--ME

You won't go wrong w/a savage = they shoot.

The only shortcoming might be the stock ,although you can do a little stiffening and get it up to speed.

Good old savage =made in the USA !!!!!!!!!!!

I got my 25-06 at the age of 15. I killed 8 elk and 8 deer in 8 consecutive years and. I love this caliber. Knocks the crap out of a mule deer at 300 yards. My furthest elk shot was 500 yards. You can't go wrong with this caliber in my opinion. Those 115 grn bergers are awsome. Hope you enjoy shooting it. Oh, I also love savages. They are the most accurate rifles I own.

Thanks again guys on the advice.I just purchased a stevens model 200 in 25-06.Then bought rem 100gr soft points just for fouder.Off the belly in balmy MN ,25degrees with some wind 6 shots .8 at 100 yards very impressive.The trigger is terrible looking to order a new one.So i buy the rifle 289.99 plus tax,then off to find reloading stuff, rcbs dies,sierra game king 117gr.,then some brass,and primers already have reloader 22 on the shelf.So i prep and loaded up the load from sierras manual 50.5 max started at 48.0grains hopefully shoot them today it's one below zero right now 7am. I asked the guy behind the counter for bergers and he just looked ,so i have to order off the internet.
