  1. 25-06

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    The 25-06 doesn't seem to get mentioned much, but it really is a fine cartridge that is in my opinion about as good as it gets for varmints to medium size game. The round came before the 270 Win as a wild cat cartridge, and later was adopted and marketed by Remington at the time when slower...

    Wildcat Cartridges
    What a great resource you guys are. Glad I found you. My dad and I have happened upon a 25-06 wildcat that we cannot identify. It is mounted in a Mauser action, but is not the original barrel. Though the barrel is labeled as a 25-06, the post fire dimensions are all wrong. Started with a...

  4. 25-06 barrel length

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Hi i am looking at a new 25-06 and am thinking either a tikka or a remington 700. I really liked the feel of the tikka but i don't like how they only offer a 22" barrel on it. I have been toled that you should have at least a 24" on the 25-06 for the best results. Anyway just wondering what your...

  7. M77 rifle build

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I have had the itch to build a 6.5x284 target rifle or a 280ai hunting rifle for awhile but just havent tracked down an action. Long story short my dad gifted me his old m77 tang safety 25-06 to do whatever I want with. Part of me would love to just leave it original and rebarrel it to 280ai...

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Hey guys, Im a newcomer to this forum but have used this site for research. I recently purchased a new remington 700 sps stainless in 25-06. Ive been out shooting with it several times in the last two weeks. I cannot get it to shoot any better than a 4" group. It has been very disappointing...
