Re: 25.06 Factory Ammo?
Pretty good selection of factory 25-06 ammo these days. Core Lokts being the least expensive, up to "premium" bullet loads being offered by Remington, WW and Federal.
While I still use some factory loads depending on the firearm, all of the dozen + deer killed with 25-06s were killed with handloads. Most were killed with either a Sierra 100gr spitzer or a 100gr Nosler Ballistic Tip.
My personal opinion is that the 25-06 really shines for deer hunting with a good 100gr bullet, which maximizes energy, velocity and flat trajectory for longer pokes.
