    Barrel questions

    So I'm after a 25-06 with 26 inch but having issues finding one so now I'm thinking buy a cheaper one and rebarrel with a true flite is this my best option?

    Browning did make 25-06 rifles with 2" longer barrels than the 270 win and 30-06 had,
    Most rifles will be 22-24",
    I have a sako 23" I think it is, and preforms well with 110gr accubonds, just under 3200fps,
    why are you after a 26", ?,
    May be worth looking at the 257 Wby as they are std with a 26" tube. at least if you are pushing for speed, this is the way to go. It will beat the 25-06 by 250fps.

    You are right a .25/06 needs a 26" barrel I have had a 23" and was only getting .257 Roberts performance my current .25/06 barrel is 26.5" and is an entirely different animal, I have done some load development with a Tikka
    T3 .25/06 with a 22" barrel very accurate but a lot slower than mine, a .257 Weatherby is faster but uses 6 grains more powder for the same velocity the rifles are hard to find ammo and cases are expensive and hard to find the
    barrel wears out faster,
    The .25/06 cases can be made from .270 .280 .30/06 if you can't find the real thing, two powders to get are RL22 AR2217,
    If you can find a shot out Tikka T3 in .308 cheap enough just change the mag and bolt stop and rebarrel it, there are some second hand .270 Winchester M70's on TM for not a lot of cash one of them would be my choice
    if I was after another .25/06.

    I already have a 2506 but this is tempting me.
