Does anyone shoot a 25-06? What type of bullet and have you had any problems with the bullet not making a pass through?

I use a Federal Vital*Shok 115 grain trophy bonded bear claw in my Savage 25-06 and only once have I not had a pass through. I hit the deer in the front right shoulder and it lodged just under the skin in the left hind quarter. Everything else though has had a very visible exit wound.

I've been wondering about buying extra barrels for my handi-rifle. 25-06 would be a fun one to try ..
