I think there is an article here that states "100fps more but with 40% more powder" no thanks! I will take the 25-06

I've shot both a lot and have to agree with the last comment.

I own both. The biggest problem with the Roy is finding bullets that can hold up to what this bad boy can dish out. Not a problem with my 25-06.. That being said, no way would I give up my 25-06. just too much fun to shoot. However if I had to choose between the two as my "go to" gun......the Roy reigns far supreme!

Load the Roy with 100 gr tipped triple shocks!! Great from point blank to 600 in my experience !

3400 fps from my 26" Sendero 25-06 with RL-17 pushing 115 gr Nosler Ballistic Tips. Never owned a Roy and I'm sure it's a great round, but with that kind of performance I'll stick with the 25-06, considering components, dies, etc.
