I'm a .243 fan... I like the short action and the milder recoil.

As regards those discussing ballistics... The .25-06 is flatter. Comparing the most likely used bullets, 100 v. 120, the .25-06 is flatter by about an inch and a half out to 500 yards. I'd guess there aren't too many folks here who would notice the difference.
