I've had a serious rotator cuff injury for years but just can't make the time to get it repaired. For my 2017 elk hunt, I chose my trusted 7mm Rem mag. When I made the killing shot from a somewhat awkward position, the recoil caught me on the point of the shoulder and made tears come to my eyes.
At that point, I realized I was done with the hard kickers. For the 2018 hunt, I used a 25/06 that doesn't hurt me and did just as well (within the parameters of my specific hunting environment) as the 7mm RM. I'm a big fan of the 25/06 and given an equal opportunity, it will perform adequately even on elk. It's a significant step above the 6.5C- not in bullet weight but in longer range performance under hunting conditions.
