Well,I guess I'm fine since I won't be shooting anything at 700 yards. I was thinking more around a reasonable 400 yard max.In which case you might be better off shooting a low recoiling accurate gun than a magnum that caused you to flinch.

In either case I would rather hunt elk with a larger caliber,however if I had a 25-06 and just wanted to take it and I limited my range to about 300 yards,I have no doubt that a lung shot with the 25-06 would anchor an elk just as fast as a lung shot with a 300 win.

I would just have to be more careful about the shot and limit my distance. I would take a hard angle shot with a 338 win mag where I wouldn't with a 25-06,likely a close running shot would be the same,not with the 25-06, but yes with a larger caliber.

I was just pointing out that it COULD kill one past 500. I have a 25-06 but it wouldn't be my first choice for shooting anything past 500. Paper included. It will hit like THORs hammer under 300 though.

The 25-06 is all about sex appeal!
Some men can't handle the 25-06 but the ones that do never button the top three buttons on their hunting shirt! Carry lots of condoms if you hunt with the 25-06!

That's wounded deer.

Max Range 1000 yd

At 700 yds

Energy = 1063 ft. lbs.

That's a dead deer.






And just who here has killed a deer at a confirmed 700 yards? crazy

117gr Hornady interlocks in my Ruger m77 MKII target 25-06..Extremely accurate and will drop a deer in its tracks.Shot one at 240yrds this past season with this rifle and he hit the ground and never kicked.

Gonna say I know you have. Now if they were with a 25-06 I don't know.

But whether y'all believe me or not I don't care but one of my best friends shot a 7 point right at 700 yards with a 25-06. On a power line below Troy.

A fast 25 caliber like a 25-06 or 257 Roy is good for shooting deer / pronghorn out to about 500 yards or thereabouts. However, 25 cal bullets have low BC's and the velocity has a more rapid decline when compared to high BC bullets in 6.5 or 7 mm bullets at extended ranges. Also, they are more prone to wind deflection due to their low BC's.

Soon this rifle gets in I'll see if i can post up some pictures or maybe have someone else do it if i can figure it out. This rifle is a 26" barrel single shot like i said before, and 300-400yd may be will be max shots with it if that. Anything further and I'll pick up my 6.5creed or something else in the safe.

Love mine. 115gr NBT. Max IMR4350.
Does great on AL deer at most typical ranges one might encounter.
If you like 130gr in 270 you really appreciate the slight milder recoil and spectacular kill powering of the 25-06.

Yup, but it nothing to do with the barrel diameter or chamber dimensions, high speed well constructed bullets kill in dramatic fashion.

close up high speed fragile bullets are quite dramatic also. I shot a buck at 20 yards with a 25/06, 100gr Hornady soft point at 3400fps. Hit the point of the shoulder and disintergrated in a 4" diameter hole. Buck was covered with blood splatter and DRT.
