    Great job Mary! IMHO the 25-06 is one of the most underrated calibers and is great on deer and antelope, especially for ladies and kids that hunt. It bucks the wind better than a .243 and I don't think the recoil is that bad either and why it is the perfect caliber unless you get into bigger game and then I go to the 30-06s. I use a .243 Sako on days with little wind (100 grain Hornday BTSP handloads) and go up to my Ruger M77 25-06 with 117 grain Hornady BTSPs when the wind picks up.

    That's awesome 270whiz - I think antelope is the perfect animal for someone new to the world of big game hunting. Can't wait till my kids are old enough to do it!!

    Congrats! Antelope is one of my favorite hunts. To me it is just laid back & fun. I also shoot a 25-06, 115 grain Winchester Ballistic Silvertips.
