    I shoot a doe last week with a 2506 and was surprised how much damage it did on the exit

    Congrats.

    What bullet? Velocity? Range? Where did you hit her?

    Out to about 500-600yds it's a good caliber on deer sized game.

    The only problem is that there's a short selection of good High BC 25 cal bullets.

    just read an article in a deer hunting mag on best calibers for deer. .25 caliber dropped the most deer, either in their tracks or only ran 16 yards or so.

    I believe it, its performance on antelope was drop in its tracks
