Hey guys, my only rifle is a 25.06. It is a deer slayer but wondering how it would stack up to a black bear. Last year I borrowed a friends 7mm but I hate to borrow someone elses gun. What do you guys think?
My cousin killed a 130# bear a few years ago with a .243. I would be ok with taking a .25-06 for bear, you may want to do some research on bullets though, that is where you can make up the differences.
Thanks guys. I'd like to get a heavier gun but can never seem to find the money to purchase one with car repairs, and day care and everything else that always seem to pop up unexpectedly. The gun I borrowed last year was a remington 770 and to be honest with you, I hated it. The bolt was extremely tough, to the point where it took me about 5 minutes to chamber a round. It was a newer gun, so may have needed broken in a bit but I would have been in trouble if I needed a quick follow up shot with that gun.
