Re: 25-06 velocity?
But the BC's I've seen in standard hunting loads aren't that different between the two, and sometimes actually favor the .270 caliber projectile in respective bullet weights (comparing 100-110gr .25 cal to 130gr .270 cal, and 115-120gr .25 cal to 150gr .270 cal)
I've been racking my brain for the past couple years wondering why so many people consider the 25-06 to be a "long range" round and not giving the nod to a .270. It seems to me that the argument for the 25-06 is strictly anecdotal.
Not to knock the 25-06, because I really would like one because of the light recoil and the relatively flat shooting charactaristics out to 5-600yds, but the .270 trumps it with some of the loads available for it now.
