Re: 25-06 elk bullet recommendations please

as a guy who has shot close to 100 animals with a 25-06 including elk I can tell you with confidence the heavies partition your rifle will stabilize is probably your best choice. I shot one last year with a 100 ttsx and i couldnt hardly kill her. if my little tikka would shoot the 115 ttsx that would be another great choice. just remember with elk you want penetration which means you need great weight retention and as much weight as possible to start with.
