If short barrels were better everyone would be shooting pistols! Even the old timers used LOOOONG DARRYL BARRELS. They just never called them that! If you want a long range gun get a LONG RANGE SMITH. Then tell them the purpose you want the gun for ( hunting or Bench ) Mine is for tipping over Elk! So I have a tappered barrel. Also I wanted to stay under 16.5 lbs for some competition some day.

GOOD LUCK CAM/SMILIE [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Questions About Rifle Accuracy.

Thanks for the info guys. I'm leaning towards the 25-06 because it's a good all around caliber for my intended use, which is groundhogs, coyotes and whitetails at a max. of 600-700 yards. I'll probably load 100 grain ballistic tips and X bullets and go with the one that performs best. If anyone has any further suggestions, I welcome your input. Thanks again.

Re: Questions About Rifle Accuracy.

I've had no success at all with Barnes X bullets and would be interested to know how to go about it. They have great BCs and potential for serious expansion.

I couldn't get neither the 25-06 nor the 7 mm Rum to shoot Barnes XBTs.

Barnes says they need a big jump to the lands. Big jump/little jump, no luck for me.

Anyone been able to make them work?

Re: Questions About Rifle Accuracy.

dwm,

I shoot the 400gr XLC in my 416wby and it shoots perfectly small groups, the 168gr XLC in the 300 Ultra shot great too. Most of Barnes BC figures are a bit overrated. My 400gr XLC was below a .400 BC and the 30 cal 180, 165, and 150 XLCBT were too.

The 150 XLCBT shot about 1 moa in my sons 308win at max load, but the others didn't do any better than 1.5-2.5 moa. All these bullets tested had a good jump to the lands, .050" - .100" or so.

Re: Questions About Rifle Accuracy.

Call Jimmy Knox at JLK bullets and look at his 25 cal VLD bullets.
