    Great advice on the bullet selection. Shoot your antelope behind the shoulder, in front of the gut, right through the ribs to minimize meat loss with whatever bullet you choose to shoot. Antelope are not very tough critters.

    My old man shoots a partition out of his 25.06. He swears by them. It didn't do much damage on the two he killed last year.

    i'm a "1 rifle for everything" guy.its an older 30/06 custom built on a interarms mauser action. its not fancy but mounts and shoots like an extention of my body.i have tried a bunch of different loads and bullets over the years and have found the accubond bullets, in 165and 180gn. to be the best for me and the rifle.i have used this rifle on animals rangeing from 15lb. steenbuck in so. africa to bull elk in nevada.on antelope and deer sized game i love this bullet for a rib shot.little hole in,big hole out and no wasted meat.and on the bigger stuff i will take a high shoulder shot if i can, and i am always pleased with the outcome.
    sorry for the long post. mike.

    Shot placement will determine the majority of meat loss.The 110 accubond in my .257 imp has left very little meat loss with proper placement.Blow a shot in the wyoming wind and you can loose meat.I can vouch for that. Larry
