    If your using boat tail bullets they will seat in new 25 06 brass without resizing and shoot just as well.

    Do it.
    I had a 26" barrel for my blaser. A mate got his blaser done in the same but with a 23" barrel and didn't loose much if anything compared to mine.

    Sadly mine got destroyed when being renamed to the AI version. (waste of time going AI in the 06 imo)

    Went with the 260 AI which gives similar performance in a short action but I prefer the 06 version.
    Was just easier all round to work with.

    I have for a while been thinking of going back to a 6.5-06 but in a shorter barrel.

    I had a 2506 with a shot out bbl, decided the 6.5 cal was going to give me more options

    I have a friend who just seats 6.5 boat tail bullets straight into 25-06 brass without resizing.

    You gotta love the 06 family, they all work well. Never had a 6.5 version but I bet it would be excellent for long range work.
