I have no idea where to start I never figured I would own a 25-06 but a good deal on a nice gun came along and now I own one. Its gonna be used for everything from antelope to both whitetail and mule deer. What is a good bullet to start with. I see that berger's 115 VLD with its high BC blows everything out of the water but am unsure of the twist rate of the rifle. There are a ton of bullets out there what are you other .25-06 guys using. TSX, Partition, Accubond, BTSP, SP, SST, among others? Anybody know the twist rate in a older model 700 it has the BDL stock but a heavy barrel? I belive a 1975 model but has less than 120 rounds fired.
