I am new to all of this. I have done a lot of hunting and shooting just not at long ranges (300 yards or less). Lately I have been playing around with a T/C Encore in 25-06 and 280 Remington. I have been really impressed with both barrels but if I underatand things the 280 has better BC than the 25-06 will be able to have. First of all am I correct in saying that? If so, would the 280 be a good long range gun? Thanks for the help.
