What's the biggest game you hunt with your 25-06?

Distance and other specs are welcome.

Remingtonman 25-06:

That is a very nice group. I love the 25-06...Have 3 of them---Remington 700 Sendero, Ruger 1 V and Ruger 1B. I too have wondered about Retumbo in the 25-06 and will try some with the 100 grain Sierra match king, and the 87 and 115 Grain Bergers.

Previously I shot some great groups in my Ruger 1B with the Sierra 100 grain match king, Remington 9 1/2 Magnum primer and 52 Grains of H4831.

My hunting load that shoots well in my Ruger 1B and groups tight is 110 grain Nosler Accubond with a Federal 210 LR primer and 53.5 grains of Reloader 22.

I would suspect that your 115 Bergers will do better than your initial group and would be interested in what your loads are when they tighten up?

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.
