    25-06 wanted

    I'm wanting to give a 25-06 a go. So I'm after something light, straight shooter, in top nick and prefer European.
    I would consider .260 /6.5 if it's special.
    Currently shooting Sauer 101 .270 but I'm wanting to go to a smaller cal.

    I have a 2506 on a CF2 action with a shilen barrel. It is not for sale, but I have another CF2 action that I would sell. These are an ideal action for those long shells with plenty of length in the mag and come with a really good target type trigger unit. Perfect for a 2506 or 6.506 AI. The 2506 does not kill like a 270 but it is very easy to hit with and shoots like a laser. I shoot 110 accubonds at 3250 and a mate shoots 115 gr at 3400 with H1000
