Maybe you should sell me that SS tikka 308 since you jumped up to 300wmI have a Remington Sendero, Stainless Fluted in 25-06. It's a nice gun that shoots tight groups with my handloads using a Nosler 115 grain bullet. I like the gun but have gone to a 300 Magnum with an explosive bullet for deer hunting in NWSGs. I want to ensure a major blood trail due to the grasses being so tall and thick.
I used to have a savage 10tac in 25-06. One of the most accurate guns I ever owns. I could hit a golf ball every time at 200 yards! Regret selling it.

I'd much rather have the 257 Weatherby for a 25 cal
Yep, I have never lost an animal shot with a Partition. Fantastic penetration, and plenty of shock without exploding and damaging a lot of meat. There's not a ton of difference between a 25-06 and a 270 Win. How about a 22 Creedmor? Same ballistics as a 22-250 Improved. I'm really wanting to try one with an 8 twist or maybe even a 7 twist. Would be awesome on coyotes and lots of people use them on deer. Definitely wouldn't be a primary gun for big bucks, but with quality bullets it would work, especially for does. Couple places are even making correctly head stamped brass.I shoot nothing but Nosler Partitions. I've never lost a deer. They HAMMER!! My usual deer gun is a .270 that I shoot 150 gr. Partitions through. Devastating bullet.
I'm looking into a 25-06 for a bit of a lighter load for yotes as well as deer. There's no necessity to buy another rifle .............. but why not??? I've got several other calibers - I just was looking for a mid-range caliber & the ballistics seem good.
I'll take ALL input - on other calibers as well. Hunting rifles is a GOOD topic - no matter the caliber!!
