Re: What's wrong with the 25-06?
I'd like to see some fast twist .25 cal barrels made, along with high BC bullets. I think a 130ish grain vld would be wicked! Out of a .308 size case I think you would reach 2950fps no problem. 25-06 would REALLY be a laser, .25wssm would be sweet, neck down 6.5 creedmoor....perfect.
Back on topic, for larger game I'd go for a load with the barnes tsx. That would be a killer in the 25-06
