Re: .25-06 Barrel Questions
The 10" twist works well for me up to 115 gr, but best accuracy is achieved with the 100 gr bullets with this twist in my opinion(this is factory twist on all 25-06's that I am aware of) <font color="black"> </font> . Pac-nor makes a 1 in 9" that you can go to the wildcat bullets that Kirby Allen can refer you towards...he posts under the name fiftydriver. I wouldn't go with anything less than a 26" barrel in the 25-06. Anything less and you will lose your advantage over 257 Roberts. I personally would try a 3 groove barrel, but my current 5 groove is shooting well. Try H4831SC powder and the 100gr SMK and NBT if you opt for the 1 in 10" twist, and you should be impressed if the rebarrel is done well, and you do your part. Good luck, and what part of Kansas are you from?
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, who's face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
