The winchester PXP bullet is a deer killing machine.Whenever I had to use factory food That's what I liked.Where did you get the projectiles .I am assuming that you loaded these.I have been using the Hornady BTSP interlocks.Finally getting off of the Ballistic tip fever.

I have aRemington Classic chambered in 25.06 and absolutely love it. It's pure deer poison around here and kills em like lighting. It's an easy caliber to load for that shoots fast and flat and hits the target hard. It also has mild recoil which makes it a pleasure to shoot.

I have a remington 700 in 25-06 and can't say enough about what a deer killer it is. Easy on the recoil and as accurate of a combo as I can shoot. I have not had any problems from this gun in this caliber and highly recommend it. Good hunting!

How far have you guys killed whitetails with a 25-06 ?

Is it effective at 300-350 yards ?

I have a T/C Encore in the 25-06..a real tack-driver! 300-400 yard shotsare common for pronghorn out west,it will do the same thing on deer...

439 yds was the farthest kill I have had with a 25-06 Rem.It was a antelope shot with 115 gr Hornady SP.He was dead in his tracks.Killed my biggest mulie with the same gun 31 1/2 wide and Gross BC 189 7/8's weiged 218 lbs on the rail(head,horns,hide).
I have and have had many 25-06's and all have been shooters but the Stevens 200 proved to be a suprise with 1/2 groups.
I have 2 one in 25-06 and one in 300 win Mag both shoot well.
No finer deer round out there IMHO.

I have never even seen a Stevens rifle.

IMHO the 25-06 is perfect for deer or antelope.

I got the Tika T3 in the 25-06 and put all my other guns in the safe. Great light, long range gun.

WK,
The Stevens Mdl 200 is the one being talked about.It is the old modle 110 but marketed under the Stevens name.
