Well, there you go. I just recently picked up a .25-06, an early Ruger 77 tang safety model, and I'm working loads for it. It's shown promise with 117 Sierra Gamekings and Reloder 22, and just this afternoon I loaded some loads for a ladder test.
The more I shoot that cartridge, the more I like it. I don't know if it will ever supplant my .30-06, but I have to admit that I like the cartridge a lot.
