    I didn't have the whole dilemma until you sold me that mint barrel

    Wonder if the barrel will fit a Howa 1500 action, might know of one

    Could have all the rifles then...

    Cerakote is certainly an option for the blued rifle @davhope

    Good to have both guns. Load up some nice 25-06 rounds for zapping animals like 100gr Sierra gamekings and then 140gr ELDMs or 143gr ELD-Xs in the 260 for longer range /South island stuff.

    just turn the spare barrel into a 25 souper just a bit different but still good performance since you are looking at reloading.

    I soak a cloth in gun oil and put it in a zip lock bag. Wipe down my blued rifle every day (or more as necessary) when out in the field. Problem solved.
    More meplat, more better.

    I think its more down to the standard of the blueing, Ive had euro made blued rifles and shotguns that the blueing looks as good as the day it was bought,
    The Blueing on this particular rifle doesn't look to have the same quality of finish.

    Why don't you do this dave
    Best of both worlds,flat fast for awhile, then the 6.5 for all else

    Or, flick everything, buy that 30 06 in a rifle with a decent mag length, take the reloading advice and go shoot what you want wherever you want.

    Having more guns is always the solution to these kinds of issues

    Go to 6.5 GAP Saum and be done with it. Shoot those 140's at 3200 with Lower case pressure than 260. Load up load down.
    The 2506 is a different beast, it is very easy to shoot accurately and relies on velocity for fast kills. I shoot 110grn ABs at 3250 but even with them my 270 kills much better. So expect the GAP to be dramatic - velocity and weight combined without getting carried away.
    Sometimes the printed figures don't reflect what actually happens in the field, for example a 22 250 is not that much faster than a 223 but the difference on game is dramatically far beyond what would be expected.
