Re: Has anyone built a 25x47 Lapua Improved
I have been thinking about a 25x47 Lapua (not improved). I would shoot 85 to 100 grain bullets out of a 23 inch # 2 contour barell. I'm not sure if I would go 1-12 or 1-14 twist, don't need the 1-10 for 100 grain or less bullets. I'm thinking I may try the Sako 85 short action (long enough for the 25x47). The one thing I'm not sure of with that combanation is the triger. I did contact JGS Tools, and they drew up a reamer for the 25x47.
The 25 cal. bullets don't hold up to the BC'S of the 6.5's or the 6 mm, but it should be a great varmit or deer rifle. Seems like there may some movement in
the US away from the BIG stuff, 7 mm, 300 win mag. and going toward the shorter actions
If you put one together I like to hear about the results.
