As a hard core 6.5x55 fan, I often ask myself if I would take mine out for elk. The answer is, if that's all I had, sure. Just make sure I've got a great shot not too far out. But I do have other rifles to hunt the big deer with, and my Swede for most everything else, so I take the magnum knock 'em dead out for elk. If you're bothered by '06 recoil, and you're patient enough to wait for the right shot, pack the 6.5. But the'06 is closer to a "do all" gun.
