I have a chance to accquire a Ruger 25-06. The price is right and I'm a fan of the Ruger rifles. However, I've never owned a 25-06 and would like to hear opinions on this caliber. I'm a PA whitetail and groundhog hunter and thought this might be a good dual-purpose addition to the safe. Any thoughts or info???

Buy it. Im a 25 fan owning many ranging from the 250 ai, 25x284, 25-06, 257 whby, and 25 wsm. The 100 grain sieera, nosler bt, and hornady will do a fine job on our deer. You will have little recoil with devasting results.
I'm right there with ya...just got a Ruger No. 1V from a member here that is in 25-06, and I already have a 257 Roberts. Was looking at a 115gr or 120gr Nosler Partition for deer and then as warm months approach, looking for a varmint bullet and working up a load.
