Bullseye,

If I was only going to hunt varmints! It would be the 22-250 over the 25-06 would be my choice! Or the 243 Winchester would be a better choice over the 25-06 for varmints. However, if you had future plans are to deer hunt or similar game in the future then my choice would be the 25-06 for starters! The reason for the previous comments would be based on availability and cost of the ammunition. And of course the selection of the game you are hunting.

I was looking at both these calibers too a whole back. I ended up getting the 06 because the 22-250 doesn't have as much of an ammo weight variety. That and I can shoot deer and hog as well with it

That was a reason I was looking at. The 22-250 is such a light round if it hits even a blade of grass on the way to its target its going to incenerate. Hows the recoil on yours? I didnt know how they compared. Whats your brand you have?

I thought ammo for the 22-250 was about 10 dollars a box higher then the 06?

I've used the 22-250 on kangaroo but prefer the 25-06.

If coyote was the largest I was going to hunt then the 22-250 would get the nod. If however I had the slightest chance of having to use the rifle on goat, deer, or antelope then I'd select the 25-06 and not look back.

I have a Howa 1500. The recoil isn't too bad. A little less than my .308, my 15 year old sister uses it as a deer gun

I can a box of either one for about the same price at Midway, its just the .25-06 will do everything (plus) that a .22-250 will do. The plus being shoot a lot heavier bullet..........
