I am looking for a .25-06 to add to my hunting arsenal. Would like to get some opinions on brands/models in Rebaís to longevity, warranty and of course accuracy. Would appreciate any advice.

Hunting or shooting? If strictly hunting, then I'd look at the Tikka T3X Lite or Weatherby Vanguard. If more shooting, then I'd look for a Remington 700 Sendero. There are lot's of choices but I'd start with those.

I owned the browning xbolt medallion in 25.06.. beautiful gun and the accuracy using factory ammo was above my expectations. I sold it and bought the same gun in .270 which is my preferred caliber for whitetail. This is not a crawl through the brush kind of gun, but dang, itís a great looking rifle and great accuracy.

Itís an over bore that takes 26Ē barrel to get most out of it.

Great caliber, Iíve taken an elk with it, and a ton of WTís and a few antelope.

The last 2 Rem 700 with the heavy barrels in 25-06 shot very well. They were 26" long, and had a heavy fluted barrel with high end stock. Both shot very well. I don't think they were the Sendero models, but might have been or very similar to them.

I have been researching the 700 Long range with a 26" barrel and think it is the one I am going to shop for. Any thoughts on the best place to look?

Iím not going to be shooting long distances but I want the 25-06. I will be mainly deer hunting. Price range $500-$700 without scope.

Take a look at the Weatherby Vanguard rifles. They guarantee 1 MOA and the trigger pull is nice and crisp on them. Your making a great choice with the 25-06 for deer hunting. I use Hornady Superformance ammo in mine.

It's true that a 26" bbl may give you everything the caliber has to offer but there's also nothing wrong with a shorter barrel for deer hunting or even long(ish) range target shooting. I had my Vanguard cut to 20" and I'm still pushing a 115 VLD 2900+ fps and staying supersonic to just under 1200 yards with 1000 ft. lbs. of energy to 500. I've shot to 800 at JG's many times with the only problem being the guy behind the gun.

In that price range look for a used Ruger, imo. Or get a weatherby vanguard. I shoot a sako a5 in 25-06 and I love that gun.
