Mate of mine has a Ruger 25/06 and it's a real pig buster using factory Remington ammo.
He doesn't shoot it enough to warrant reloading at the moment but it's a good boar buster with 100gn SP's.

The Quebec wolf and eastern coyote have interbred making for a larger, more aggressive coyote highbred. They are still considered coyotes. The only restrictions is for hunting over bait and at night. Bait sites must be logged w/ fish and game and night hunting is limited to a few winter months.

They were called .25 cal. They were also considered a round that did not pose much of a threat as it had no penetration power. It was very ineffective in the jungles of the Pacific Theatre. The true issue was that there was also a reduced power machine gun 6.5x50 that reduced MV to 2200fps from 2500. This was the most common 6.5 ammo found as logistical problems between 2- 6.5 cartridges, 3- 7.7 cartridges, rimmed, semi rimmed and rimless made it a nightmare.
Here is a quick comparison of U.S. .30-06 ball and 6.5x50 japanese cartridges at 100 yards. I won't bother w/ velosity at 100 yards, only energy.
.30-06 150gr ball 2030fpe @ 100 yards
Standard 6.5x50 139gr ball 1500fpe @100 yards
Reduced power 6.5x50 139gr ball 1160fpe @ 100 yards.

Some is true, some is just propaganda from the U.S. gov't at the time.

Ever hunt Moose or massive whitetail in the north country of the east??
This was just a couple weeks ago. Franconia Notch.


Fall or early winter hunting is quite fun and very extreme. I have hunted the west, Colorado. I lived there for 4 years.
