This one is marked 1:9... not sure what that equates to in heavy for caliber bullets for this cartridge but 120s seem pretty normal for the 1:10s

5shot,
Yes that is an 03 that my Grandad bought new! A lot of us in our family all learned to shoot with it. All original with Lyman folding peep. I still have a bunch of his stuff, axes,packbaskets, snowshoes, knives, compass etc. Unfortunately his Savage 1899TD in .250/3000 was with him the nite he and his sport went thru the ice on Baskahgan Lk and has never been recovered.........neither survived. His name was same as mine. My grandmother carried on with our lodge with her brothers guiding. Two years later exactly to the day (Nov 20th) my great uncle was fatally shot by his sport..... His name was Everett.
I am named after both of them: Earle Everett......
Like the old Savage 03.. Lots of family history here.

I've owned several different calibers over the years and still do but the 25.06 is no doubt my favorite caliber. I've owned several different rifles chambered in 25.06 which were a Sendero, Rem 700 ADL, Rem 700 BDL, H&R single shot, Rem 700 Classic and my current rifle is a Rem 700 CDL which happens to be the one I cherish the most out of them all. I've shot just about every bullet out there with great results but my go to load for deer is the Speer 120gr Hot-Cor. I've used this combination for years with excellent results and it's been so consistent for me that at times I get bored with it. I play around with other bullets in the off season because that's what reloading does to us but when deer season approaches I find myself loading up those ole school 120gr Hot-Cors.

I don't think anyone would regret owning a 25.06 especially if deer sized game is on the menu. It's an accurate caliber that's fast, shoots flat with low recoil, and hits the target hard!

Guy Minor & 1100 Remington,
Fajen seemed to ALWAYS have great wood in stock. The loss of that company to the industry was a major loss to hunters wanting beautiful wood on their firearms.

I’ve seen four elk taken with the .25-06; 120gr partitions; 100-300 yards. Two dropped more or less right there, two that offered quarter away angles resulting in some tracking but ultimate recovery. I don’t own one, it’s on my short list, it is an impressive cartridge.
