Guys help me understand why the 25/06 is spoken of as if it's that much faster than other rounds? I talking about with bullets for deer.(100-120gr)When loading the 7mm/08 for my nephew, the barnes manual list 120grTXS at 3080fps with RL15 max as there best load.His gun shoots this load great.They list the 25/06 with 117grTSX at 2996-3161fps and that bullet is 5gr. lighter.My 30/06 with 130gr.TSX/win748max load list fps as 3308 and my rifle loves this load and is faster than either.Is the speed from the varmint bullets or bullets less than 100gr that you gain more speed?
