    Hi all, My name is Mick and i live in Castleford, West Yorkshire, I shoot shotguns,rifles,air rifles and before the ban i used to shoot pistols,

    Im just starting to get into deer stalking after being introduced by a farmer friend up in the heights of Scotland, so my foxing rifle (.223) has to go im afraid and a move towards a 25-06 looks likely, has anyone got this calibre and whats their thoughts on it ?

    Cheers all

    25 06 /6.5x55 both do the job

    25-06 was what i should have put DOH, thanks for the prompt of my error, (20-5), I must have had a senior moment,

    What ammo do you recomend ? My rifle of choice at present is a Tikka T3 lite,
