Re: Another Newbie
First of all, welcome to the forum.
Since you are wanting to decide between 22-250 and 25-06, let me say I LOVE my 25-06! I built it for prairie dogs and shoot an 85 grain ballistic tip that is great for fighting the wind at ranges the 22-250 has trouble with. But you still get the "red mist"!
"...As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body, and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks."
