The .25-06 is a very good choice. With 117-120 grain bullets they have a high sectional density and should work fine for pigs and goats and give you good longer range ballistics. Obviously shot placement is a bit more critical than with a .30 cal bullet.

In my experience, the .25-06 is a caliber that is very inherently accurate. I cannot seem to load a bad round for it. Brass can be formed easily from .270, .280 and .30-06 brass. Simply full length size and trim (especially when using .270 and .280.

I do not care for the lighter 100 grain bullets. The only thing I load is the heavy weights in the .25-06.
