I'm looking at buying a 25-06 rig and need some opinions and options on rifle and glass. I'll be shooting paper and use it for hunting a few times a year in a blind with shots around 100-200yds. I am planning on spending around $1,500.00 and not partial to any specific brands. I'm not concerned about weight. Any and all suggestions are welcome so please let them rip. Thanks.

If you like walnut and blued steel, get your mits on a Model 70 and check it out.

I have a Tikka T3 Hunter in 25/06, and its topped with a Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40. At some point, I'll upgrade the optics, but it works just fine, so I am not going to mess with it.

My wife shoots a 25-06 in a Remington mod. 700. I replaced the stock w/a Bell and Carlson stock. I have hunted with it a couple'a times and it is a great gun.

maybe one of the new Remington 700 long range. I have one in 30-06 in the $700-800 range:


Engineered to make three shots look like one. From extended-range big-game hunting to printing one-ragged-hole groups from the bench, no rifle delivers like the Model 700. And we're continually finding new ways to maximize our legendary action's inherent precision.

The Model 700™ Long Range combines the added stability of a 26" heavy-contour barrel with hard-hitting, long-action chamberings to stretch your lethal range.

Key Features:
Bell and Carlson M40 tactical stock – solid urethane stock, combined with aramid, graphite and fiberglass
Aluminum bedding block for added accuracy and an extra swivel for bi-pod
26” heavy varmint barrel with matte finish perfectly matched to its high-velocity caliber offerings
X-Mark Pro® externally adjustable trigger system set at 3˝ lbs., and featuring super-tight tolerances and mirror-like surface finishes
Magazine capacity – four standard calibers, three magnum

Went to Cabella's and handled the 700, Tikka Lite and model 70. I dismissed the 700 as soon as I picked up the Tikka. I really liked the way the Tikka lite handled, the action was smooth and the trigger felt good. I do wish it had a little more weight on it. The Model 70 was not quite as smooth but felt and looked good. I wish they would of had a hunter and a varmint to compare but I diidnt see one so I'll have to keep looking.

If u liked the Tikka check out the Sako A7, another great shooter for the money.

I own a Browning A-Bolt with a Zeiss 4.5-14x50. It's a beautiful great shooting rifle! I love it...

About those triggers...the Model 70 comes with the MOA trigger and it can be adjusted for a better pull, and if that's not good enough a spring from Ernie the Gunsmith will take it down to a beautiful pull of about two pounds. I have Timney triggers that don't quite match it. The spring is about ten bucks.

I have a Sako in 270 that is really special. Before you settle on a rifle, go look at those Sako's. That said, most of my hunting is done with a Tikka T3 Lite stainless in 260. It has a heavier aftermarket barrel, which added a little weight. The cost was well below your budget, and accuracy is beyond superb. ChadTRG42 on this forum had it put together for me.
