I definatly will have to vote for the 25-06AI Great speed and barrel life. Mine is a Tikka 695 with a Krieger 26" It will shoot small up to mule deer without any problem. however You simply couln't ask for a better white tail and antalope rifle.
I have a 25-06AI 1-10 twist I shot a thumbtack at 100 yards yesterday and then hit that first hole 2 more times before I pulled the 4th shot off 1/4 of an Inch. my chamber was cut by bob white @ the shooters corner with a .284 neck this is a close tolerance neck it will chamber factory brass with .002 clearance this really helps on working the case neck.
25-243 ackley or 25 wssm match reamer would be my first choices. they are both very efficent and with the 115 grain berger vld and 115 nosler would be very accurate have good brass and very good barrel life. Solid 1k performance [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] Just a thought
