Default 25-06 vs 22-250

Looking to change up my coyote gun from my AR since I'm setting that up for hogs and wanting a longer range gun anyways

I think your AR is better suited for coyotes and a .25-06 for hogs. Why not just buy a 6.8 upper? Change out uppers for anything from P-dogs to Whitetail or pigs.

I've never shot a 25-06, but I have shot some 22-250 and I think they are a great coyote gun. It's on my short list for guns. I've heard a lot of good stuff about a 25-06 too though.

I enjoy my 25-06. The problem is when I shoot it at the range, people complain about "feeling" the percussion at the far end of the stand.

25/06 all day long over the 22-250.
The 22-250 is a great varmint round,but most of them lack the barrel twist to shoot bullets heavier than 60gr.
The 25/06 will shoot from 75gr - 120gr bullets,and will work on p'dogs or on up to elk.
The only negative for the 25/06 is unless you shoot a heavy barreled rifle,it will get hot very fast.My heavy barreled Savage heats up pretty good after 4-5 shots,most sporter barreled rifles will heat up in 2-3 shots.

So you think the 25-06 would be good for deer and still be a clean kill with proper shot placement?

absolutely, the 25-06 with the right ammo is an excellent deer caliber and the recoil is very mild, even in lighter weight rifles. loaded with lightweight bullets, is even a very effective varmint caliber too. get one and you will most assuredly enjoy it.
