OK, so thanks for all the help. I did not take the 7mm-08/ 7mm Rem. Mag deal I posted in my past thread. So here is the dilemna.... What is the next logical progression up from a .25-06 for North American Game? Could I just get by with one rifle, all the way up to Elk, given the right loads? It has been suggested I go to a .270. I have also been told to look at the standby 30-06 and .308. I have been told to look at things like Ruger's .300RCM. To save THR folks from a lot of past reading and searching, I only own a .25-06 right now. Budget is not really an issue for the right choice, so is there really a do-it-all caliber????.
