Re: Tikka 25-06
I think it is a shame that the Tikka 25-06 has a 22" tube.
Some say it doesn't matter, but it does to me. I like the Savage 26" & I have the older Sendero. 24" would work like the Rem. BDL & others, but I don't get the 22". Many Tikkas' shoot well, but I wish they had a big recoil lug.
You will not make peace with the Blue Coats, you are free to go.
