The 25-06 is a great round for whitetails. I have a friendthat has taken hundreds of deer with just about every gun you can think of and claims the 25-07 is the best in his opinion.He routinely take deer at 400+ yards on powerlines with his 25-06.

25-06 is a bad ass round, but I heard it needs a 26" barell to get the most out of it.

I probably shoul've gotten a 25-06 instead of the 257 Roberts but I just have to be the guy that when someone comes up to and asks what your shooting and tell them a 257 or 6.5x55 or 307 winchester you either get that real funny look or one of admiration and a comment like my grandaddy used to shoot one of them. Yea just have to be different.

Great round for deer, nice and flat, decent energy and moderate recoil even in a light gun. The three rounds you will see mentioned for low recoil for small shooters will be the 25-06, .243 and 7mm-08. I personally own a .243 but it's more of a varmint gun since you can't hunt with a rifle in lower Michigan.
