I love .25 calibers. I built my first 25-06 back in the late 60's, way before it was offered as a factory cartridge. I just picked up a used Weatherby Mark V .257 Wby Mag. I am really excited to see what I can work up for it. I've probably shot 50 deer, 40 antelope and some feral hogs with my 25-06, it is a wonderful rifle. It's an older Ruger M77 tang safety with a 4 x 14 Leupold VXIII. Been shooting it for 35 years and never done anything to it except glass bed the action, shoot it and keep it clean!
