Hi All! I'm new here, found this forum doing research as to whether or not consider carrying my 25-06 on this years cow-elk hunt. I had a BEAST of a heavy rifle that was a real witch lugging through the rockies for the past decade now and just didnt want to take it again!
Fortunately, as of today there's a brand new Tikka T3 Lite stainless 7MM Rem Mag in the safe, with plenty of time left to "become one" with it before this years 4th season hunt.
After seeing ALL the debate about the "best round", I'd like to find out what you LIKE - you know, not all the ballistics, bullet weights, velocities, etc..... What do you find you LIKE best to carry on your own hunts? What do you find your "old reliable" and #1 choice to carry out of camp on opening morning?
PS, the "trusty" 25-06 wont stay at home - it's deadly on those 'yotes and will have a box of 117Gr Tripple Shock's along "just in case". But, I'm counting on the new Tikka T3 7Mag to be what I want to grab first heading out of camp on opening morning this year
