Distance and other specs are welcome.
The biggest game I hunt, in Australia, are Fallow deer, about the same size as 'speed goat', with the 25-06.
We also have Sambar deer, not as heavy/big as Elk, but IMHO, they are tougher.
I have used it for them, but the State I live in, the 25-06 is not legal for these animals, other States have now brought in the same laws, minimum calibre on Sambar is 270.
As to long distance shooting, I primarily hunt pigs and goats @ ranges beyond 500yds, and the occasional deer.
