    what is the difference from a 25-06 and a 30-06

  • #2
    Size of the bullet. They both use the .30-60 brass(hull), one uses a .257 size bullet the other .308. Hope this helps.

      G"YEP! Big O said it!

      25-06 shoots a smaller diametr and lighter bullet fast and flat and you can hunt Elk!

      30-06 shoots bigger bullet not as flat but harder hitting and you can hunt Moose!

        Both are excellent cartridges with a wide range of uses.

          Clay that is the most unscientfic answer you've ever gave! The 25-06 is an excellent cartridfe from deer to coyotes to elk. It shoots flat, it kills and it out preforms most of the other 25s (althogh the 257 WBY still beats it) is economical to shoot and even Wally World carries it!) Its a good cartridge and one of the last ones I would ever sell if the sh93 hit the fan!

            I was waiting for you to catch that! LOL!!!

            257 WBY MAG? Outperforming thr 25-06?? Maybe your 25-06, not my 25-06! YUK YUK!

            Now I can push the 257 WBY too, but I'm shooting 257 WBY factory load velocities!

              The 25-06 is my #1 choice. Years ago I sold my 300 Win Mag shooting blistering loads at 750 yards and some change. I sold the 300 Win Mag and bought a 25-06 and never looked back!

              How sweet it is! O'YA!!

              I shot a Big Mule Deer at 300 yards with a 120 grain Nosler Partition shoulder shot with total pass thru and pulverized the shoulder as if I shot it with a 180 grain 300 Win Mag!

              By the way, all the 300 Win Mag cases I had?
              I made 338 Win Mag out of them!!

                    They are 2 different diameter bullets in the same case. They are similar except for a)SPEED. The 25-06 has it, the 30-06 does not, b)recoil. the 30-06 has it, the 25-06 does not. c) flexibility with varmints. The 25-06 has it, the 30-06 does not and finally d) flexibility for larger game like the larger African antelope. The 30-06 has it the 25-06 does not. I have a Weatherby in 25-06 and people who don't shoot much thought I was nuts for not getting the .257 Weatherby for the same price. I did it because the 25-06 cartrige has been my overall favorite for over 40 years for hunting in the lower 48 states. It is hard to beat. The .257 Weatherby is impressive with a little more unnoticeable speed but it kicks... one of the main reasons I like the 25-06.. it doesn't kick and the brass is dirt cheap for reloading versus expensive for the Weatherby. I can't say anything bad about the venerable 30-06 though... a great all around cartrige unless you want to shoot varmints and don't mind recoil.

                      Dakotaman, not bad. Three out of four,I think you were off on point c). The 06 bullets range in size from 110gr. to 220 factory. I've used the 110s on coyotes and never had a problem.

                        25-06 has a smaller lead and the neck of the brass has a smaller diameter. Goes further and faster than 30-06.

                          30-6 is bigger and it kicks more harder and the rifle is heavier than a 25-6.

                            Of all the posts so far, I like Clay's original post the best. Short, sweet and to the point!

                              Clay beat me to it, just a necked down 06', using smaller and lighter diamiter bullets thus creating more velocity.
