For the one-gun rifleman who seldom pursues game larger than deer, and who also needs to rid the pasture of hogs and coyotes, there may be no better choice than the flat-shooting .25-’06 Rem. Truth be known, the mild-mannered cartridge’s ability to utilize bullets weighing upward of 120 grs. makes it a much better choice for big-game hunting than the .243 Win., even for youth, novices and the recoil shy, while 115- and 120-gr. projectiles are equally effective for large quarry as 130-gr. bullets in the .270 Win., but with less recoil. As you can see, this .25-cal. cartridge is no quarter-bore.
