Haven't thought about this thread in a while, but it's funny you should mention the .25/06, I think that's the gun that will be making the ride to Wyoming this year. I have a good load worked up with the 115 grain Nosler BT. I'm still working on the purpose built rifle but I am just not there yet. I started playing with the .25/06 to have something to shoot while I was piddling with the other stuff and the more I shot it the better I liked it. It won't have the range of the big 7s but I'm not confident enough to take advantage of the extra horsepower yet anyway.
