Three of us with two 25/06 rifles got three chucks at 1100 yards one day. My wife and I killed two with my 25/06 and a friend killed one with his.

My 25/06 has a 30" barrel and the bullet I use in it is the 100 gr Ballistic tip and the powder of choice "in mine" is 54 grs of H4350.

I use a Unertl 24X 2" and also a Leupold LR 30MM tube 8 1/2X to 25 X.

The 15X unertl 2" Varminter works real nice also.

The BEST optics I have ever looked through have been on the 2" Unertls

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
