I currently shoot with my .243 and love it for my Muntjac and roe stalking. I am however in the process of taking in some land with a large amount of fallow as well as doing some red stalking. I shoot 100gr through the rifle and i know i am legally allowed to shoot them with this combination but i cant help but feel i would be better of with a 6.5x55 or what really takes my fancy a 25-06. I can only really afford 1 rifle but i dont want to be blowing the front end off my roe and muntjac as they keep me fed at uni!
So my question is if i was to go for the 25-06 is there a load that would be suitable to take fallow and reds without too much meat damage to my muntjac? Or would i be better suited to the 6.5x55.
