    Most any 100 to 120 gr factory load will kill deer very well if you put the bullet in the vitals. The 25-06 is just a deer killing machine.

    Federal makes some very good ammo with tried and true bullets.

    Federal Premium Vital-Shok 117 gr Sierra GameKing SPBT

    Federal Premium Vital-Shok 115 gr Nosler Partition

    Hornady makes some good loads also. 117 gr Custom SPP BT or Custom SST

    The plain old Remington 100 or 120 gr Cor-Lokt has taken a bunch of deer also.
