View Full Version : 25-06 texas dall report!

February 15, 2012, 07:08 PM
Well I made it back to Michigan after a successful south texas hunt. I used the savage axis in 25-06 with a bushnell dusk and dawn 6-18, hornady 117 gr sst. The ranch had a lot of gold medal class rams so I had to look for one with some character. When I did the gun did the job. The first shot right behind the shoulder pretty much disabled him, I didn't think a second was necessary but my guide asked for one. After the ram hunt I also had a chance to take a couple hogs including my best boar yet. Just like the ram they only needed one shot a piece. All in all I was very pleased with the gun and scope and can't wait to go back to texas!

If I didn't already own a .270 and a .22-250, I would buy a .25-06. A great all-around caliber.

Beautiful ram, I want a 25-06 so bad. Unfortunatly my wife has a semiknowledgeable brain, if thats a word, of guns and rifles. My only wooden stocked rifle, besides military guns. Anyway, enough about my dreams, lets see some hogs! Woooooo pig sooooie!
