Thanks,

A few things enter the facts here. The 25:06 is a fantastic cartridge. In fact the last rifle that I built for myself was a 25:06. But---at longer ranges the lighter bullet drops off and the accuracy isn't that great at longer (what do you mean by longer ? ) over 300 yards. If I had to be limited to an 06' or 308 I'd probably go the 06' route even though you can shoot the same bullet out of both rifles. The BIG question here is what are you going to do with it and what do you want it for. I reworked a .458 for a guy who said " It was the best ground hog rifle he had ever owned ". A little over kill ?? I think so but it's up to the shooter !!

IMO the 25-06 is more versatile will fly further with a flatter trajectory.
1170-grain bullets are good enough to drop a deer.
