The odd caliber scared me off for a couple days but I figured if I hang out here with you guys long enough I'll have this thing re barrelled to .338 Edge by the summer after I get bored with buying factory ammo for the current chambering.

Anyone know of any ranges in New Hampshire longer than 100 yards? LOL
That's what makes Remington the best haha. They're comfortable, accurate, and affordable. Good luck with your new long range rig!

You made a wise choice. For deer size game the 25-06 is deadly. I have killed 100+ deer with the 25-06. I like varmint barrel Remingtons.
