Re: lookin for a new 25-06,question

and why would you want a rifle that's 51% owned by a company that became known for there revolvers, yes T/C is majority owned by Smith and Wesson

Well Ive had real good luck with the contender being a real shooter & a couple other rifles they make.seen a guy at the range with a 308 Venture shooting less than MOA. This rifle would be a truck gun & have a rough life as a double duty gun.The prices helps also @ 430.00 the quailty seemed to be up to Par.I do like the tikka also But the Venture is American made and it allows for a couple hundred dollars for optics.THUS My ?

Oh I'm not a big S&W fan but they have a nice finish.

For the money I would also go with the T/C Venture. I have shot lots of both make rifles doing sight in work for a friends gun shop. Over all there has not been any difference between the accuracy of them with factory ammo. They both shoot on the average under 1 MOA. The Venture has a better trigger on average and is adjustable. Good glass will make any rifle shoot better because you can see what you are shooting at. Get the Venture and up grade the glass sounds good to me.

In that case if your looking for cheap, accurate, and easy to upgrade go to wal-mart and get a 110 or 111 fxp3 savage for 397.00 and take the cheap 3-9x40 off and sell it for 25 then you have 372 in a rifle that's free floated and has an accutrigger and probably will out shoot both that you mentioned and later down the road you can put a duramaxx stock on it and a 26" heavy barrell for around 375. Look at the weaver V24 mil dot scopes, they are cheaper than what I normally buy (379) but I got one for a 308 and its pretty nice for the money, they are 6-24x42AO.

Dropping from a 26 to a 22 can slow you down 75-150fps depending on bullet weight and powder burn rate.

I know that 52.5 H4831SC gets you 3224fps in a 26" barrel when the "charts" show 2900 out of a 24" er.
