Re: OT, 25.06 caliber
also if you are planning to hunt with this, one thing to consider is availability of ammo. while your in the city you can get 25-06 ammo all day with no problem. once you get out toward the hunting camp and realize you left your ammo at home and need to stop off at larry bob dwights guns tackle and car parts your likely not going to fing any 25-06. i rememember my bud paying $37.00 for the only box of .300 weatherby mag(?) ammo at some backwoods hardware store. this is one of the reasons i like to stick with the most popular calibers. if he had just had 30/30, 30.06, .270, or the like, he could have easily just borrowed a few bullets from one of us or someone on the lease.
if your worried about recoil go with something like a .270 or even a 30/30 if you dont have to shoot to far.
