 I worked with a nephew one afternoon at range with the same 25-06, I had him knocking the black out of a 3 ” orange stickon, target dot in less than 10 shots with me coaching him, first time he had shot a high power centerfire, I put him in my favorite stand and told him to shoot anything with horns for freezer, His first deer hunt, and 20 min later I heard the shot!

Looks like you are in the South and have had some good hunting with your Winchesters there on both Whitetails and turkey.  Hogs too?

Nice, I recently shot an Oryx on the White Sands Missile Range at a whopping 542 yards with a 1953 06, 180 grain barnes bullet and a decent Gila Nat. Forest mule deer both in New Mexico (same gun but with a 150 Sierra).  Nothing like a model 70.  Not only are they nice shooting rifles but they give you something to admire while your waiting.

Hopefully, I’ve figured out how to post a photo.  The 542 yard Oryx shot is too far for a 06 but I had a guide who calling the shots.  The second shot was right in the chest.  Made me go out and get a pre64 M70 .300 WM.
