I will get my Savage Axis II in 25-06 in the next weeks. It's coming from France as in Spain, where I live, there is very little availability of rifles and ammo in this caliber. And now to the purpose of this thread, my choice of ammo is limited to:
Hornady Whitetail 117gr (Interlock)
Hornady SST 117gr (already discarded)
Federal Fusion 120gr
Federal SPEER HOT CORE 117gr
Remington Core Lockt 100gr
The target animals will be roe, chamois, fallow and hinds. The odd boar could also cross in my way while stalking, but I will continue using my 30.06 in night boar hunts and for reds.
I have already ordered a couple of boxes of 117gr Hornady Interlocks that will arrive with the rifle, but I'm open and eager to read your suggestions as I've no experience at all with the 25.06 and it's an unknown round in Spain.
