    Okay the wife said I can get a 25-06 with the income tax rip off return check from the internal reaming service. But I told her I would keep it at around $400 - $500 but I'd like to keep it at, around or preferably below $400. I will hang the 7.5 fixed power Leopold that is on my 30-06 on it until I can afford another scope. So All that being said whats out there in this price range that is chambered in 25-06? I know the Remington 700, I think a model 70, and I know there are some Marlin XL7's that were chambered in 25-06 for a while. Maybe a savage? I like Savage rifles and I like the accutrigger but I'd kinda like to give Remington, or Marlin a try. What do yall think?

    You may be able to find a used Ruger M77. My wife has one in 25-06.

    You can't go wrong with a Savage. A 700, 70 or 77 may be hard to find in that price range with a decent adjustable trigger. Plus the Savage would be a model 110 or so, not a number with a 7. Hehehe

    I have thought about that. But I don't have the time to invest in it right at this time. I could change all that out later on a Remington, Winchester, or a Savage right?

    They are all very upgradable. The question is, are you going to want to upgrade, or spend the money on another gun when the time comes?

    I don't know much about which 25-06 rifle is best, but I can say that it is a pretty sweet little round. You can shoot a 110grn hp at 4700 fps! if you like varmint shooting those type of ballistics are hard to beat. Then you can always load up to like a 150 amax for whitetail.

    Its a 30-06 case necked down to a 270-6mm size bullet correct? I don't have one myself but I have used one in Kansas on prairie dog shoots before and it was just awesome.

    It is a 30.06 necked down to a .257 bullet.

    I'm wondering about brands are out there that are around that price range that will do about 1 moa. I know the Marlin bolt guns are a moa/sub moa for a decent price but what else is there.
