Re: 25-06 elk bullet recommendations please

The partition is a good bullet choice as well, it will open but still have some drive. My dad shot 120gr Hornady interlocks last year in a 250AI and it worked well but nothing over 400yrds, reamed out an antelope, deer and a nice cow elk, it left a wound channel and blood trails that a blind man could follow up on!!

    A good friend of mine hunts with a 257 Ackley. He shoots em with 117 Sierra Gamekings @ 2800fps and it kills em as good as anything else. I would lean toward the partition myself. It's been killin critters for a looooong time and is still one of the best selling hunting bullets on the market.

    Did you ever have root beer cool aid? I loved it as a kid! Anyways, I've never used Barnes. My cousin used their XLC bullets when they still made them. Can't remember, but I think he liked them. He uses mainly Hornady, Sierra, and Nosler now. I use Hornady and Nosler. Nothing personal against the Barnes, just never used them.

    Well first you did not say what yardage you are looking at
