    117grain out of a 25/06 fits the bill for everything in my opinion pal

    .243 - 87gn or 75gn v max not shot a huge number of roe by some peoples standards but enough to form an opinion, i would say 90-95% of roe i have shot from 40 - 250 yds + have dropped on the spot be it neck or h/l shots.
    Yes before anyone jumps in they will cause a varying degree of meat damage maybe more than some others, if the carcass is for home im not bothered about some bruising to the ribs.
    If im selling the venison i will neck shoot if poss with a good rest, if not i will leave if for another day. DF

    Agree with the choice of Sierra 85grn BTHP. I used them in a .243AI and they were so accurate and performed well on Roe...

    7mm, 140 gr Partition, does the job perfectly every time. Having said that I'm changing calibre to .308 soon and I'll be using 150 gr Partition, will see how it goes.
    I'm telling Captain - from the Wee'est of men.
