Love the caliber. With a 26 inch barrel it's almost up to a .257 Weatherby mag. Don't know about Weatherby 2 line.

I like the 120 grain Nosler partition. I zip them out about 3000 fps.

I also love the 75 grain Hornady v max bullets. At 3600 fps it's devastating to rabbits and the most accurate bullet my rifle shoots.

I like IMR 4350 powder for both. Kinda light for elk but it'll do. Perfect for deer. I've taken 3 mulies from 50 to 400 yards. I took an elk at about 250 yards.

I have one of the Howa 1500s with a pigman*? Hogue stock on it. Haven't taken it hunting yet but it's deadly accurate with hornady 117grain ballistic tips

The 25-06 is a grand old Ctg. It covers the board from varmints to deer. It is a great open country rifle. I would not use it on elk or moose. Yes, I know it will kill the Big animals. I also know it is marginal on bones in big critters. I don't like to see wounded animals when a bigger bullet would have been a better choice.

Pretty much a 'lighter' 270. .. If whitetail an mulies are your biggest deer. A 2506 is good choice.
I wouldnt use it for American or Canadian elk though.
