quote:Instant flashback for me! When I was younger (MUCH) and getting ready to buy my first big game rifle, I debated between the 25-06 and the 270 Win. Ended up w/ the latter, but I could've probably been just as happy w/ the 25-06.
I just looked up the ballistics for the 25-06 just cause I haven't in a while and the quarter bore intrigues me. I remembered why I have never given it real thought. Why? Why a 25 over a 270. Why a 270 over a 30?
7mm-08 is a hot little round and is pretty flat shooting, but a short distance round from what I have collected.
