For deer the 25-06 gives an edge in SD(secttional density) in the heavier weights....I love the 25-06 though...

25-06 hands down. I will do anything a 243 will do and much more.

The 25.06 is going to have a higher muzzle velocity, but the .243 is a little flatter shooting.
Where do you find data supporting that statement.The Federal and Remington data indicate that the 25-06 is flatter shooting at 500 yards.

If you hit the deer right, it will be dead with either round. Not really enough difference to worry about.

IMO, they are a pretty close in most areas and like said they will both kill deer just as dead... I happen to have both and like the 25-06 better, not because the round is better butmy 25-06is set up different thanmy .243, it'sset up for varmint shooting, it is heavyand shoots sweet!!!!!!!! Great box stand gun, but if I were to behiking a ways to hunt I would not hesitate for one secondto take the .243 out in the woods....

Deer can't tell the difference. .243 Ammo is less expensive, easier to find, and you have alot more choices. I've had great results with the .243.

I have limited experience with the .25-06
