and it seems like an awesome shell in 115 Nosler, whatever the hell that means. Low Recoil, fast, long renge, and deadly.
How far does your hunting experience go? This is sending the wrong messages to me.
Nosler is a brand that makes bullets and 115 is the weigh of the bullet, 115 grains.
You also stress low recoil. I think recoil matters nil when hunting. You don't even feel it. If you're worried about the scope hitting your face then you're not shooting your rifle correctly.
I would go 30-06 over 25-06 because you are much more likely to get an exit wound and have a blood trail to follow.
But, to not stray too far off topic, my dad has a TC Encore muzzleloader in .50. The biggest deer he ever killed was shot at 212 yards with it and dropped the bastard. They are great rifles.
