Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

Default RE: 25-06 for deer

A member of my hunting party uses a .25-06 for blacktail and muledeer. I have never seen him have to use a second shot. Shoots flat and hits hard. If I didnt have my 7mag, it would be my next choice.

Otis...The 25-06 has been a hot topic in here lately. If you search back, you'll see what I mean.

It is one hell of a deer gun. It's superior to the .243, which lots of folks swear by.

The 100 gr bullet may be a little light...but why not shoot the 120gr Core-lokt's? That's what my buddy shoots and he never has any problem with deer.

Only drawback to the 25-06 is the noise. Man are they loud. I've been around several different models of 25-06 and they've all been loud.

Good luck!

I used to shoot a 257 wby and my hunting partner a 25-06 both using 100 gr ballistic tips.Kill's were every bit as clean and quick as a 270 or 280.With 100 gr partitions I did take a bull elk and my partner a bull moose with these guns although they are marginal for game that large.

I bought one about a year ago and find I use it more than anything else ,Its very accurate and has a milder recoil than my 270.win . Between the two it would be up to each individual which was better

I use a 25-06 for deer and woodchucks! The 120gr Hornandy HP is a great bullet for deer...I also took a New Mexico pronghorn with it this past August <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
I use the same gun but different scope & bullet for chucks. Last year was my longest...503 yards! Why get a .270 or .280 when a 25-06 can do it all with less recoil?

Hunt Safe!

A GREAT choice for a Deer rifle. I would use the 120 grn bullets. 120 grains @ 3000 fps is plenty good for any Deer <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle> Even if you don't handload, there are factory rounds that will approch these numbers
