I shot a little muley buck at 604 yards with the 115g BT. The deer went about 20 yards and flopped over. Several coyotes at 500+. I would say the 25-06 is one of the better deer getters and when using the right bullet, like the 115g BT, it will kill more deer farther than 90% of people can accurately shoot them.
