25-06 shooting a 120g Nozler Partition has killed more mule deer and antelope for me than any other gun. It's comfortable to shoot, will reach out and do the job. Most of my shots have been on the 200-400 yard range.
I broke the stock on my 25-06 and bought a new 270WSM, But I will buy another 25-06.
My .264 Win Mag that I just finished building on time for deer season. I have two Colorado tags, a New Mexico tag, a California tag (which I may eat, not sure I can pull that one off too) and two Maine tags for her to fill with me this year. 140 gr Nosler Partitions, 65 gr. IMR 7828SSC, Federal Gold Medal Match Primers. Velocity 3150 fps out of the 27 inch Lilja barrel. Mild recoil, long bullets for good penetration and high ballistic coeffecients. Sweet shooting gun! Been borrowing my buddy's custom .264 off and on for years before I built mine.
Moose calling can get confusing to some, but cow calling is your main tool when moose hunting. If you go out and buy moose calls I would say you're wasting your money unless it is the birch bark cone. I find most store bought moose calls sounding worse than puffing a grunt your hands to make the call. You can roll up a piece of birch bark in a cone shape to use as a call and spend your money on a video that teaches you the basics of a cow call. A milk jug or a coffee can with a hole and a rope...
