The only time I've ever seen anything drop with a 6mm bullet is on those LRH videos from BOTW and the youtube video where John Burns takes some lady hunting and she dumps a cow elk at 600 or so yards with a 243.

My preference is simple. If I expect the animal to travel after I shoot it, I'm using archery. I expect it to drop and not travel at all or very little if I have a firearm. Of course it doesn't always turn out like I hope. My Colorado bear I just killed on the 4th made it about 4-5 feet after I dumped him.
I wouldn't be worried too much about .25 caliber. I've had zero issues shooting deer with my .257 Wby.
