I'm in the market for a 25-06. It'll be my daughters first deer rifle, (and my backup wolf rifle
). I love Tikkas, the weight and size are perfect, but the 22in tube scares me, I'd prefer 26in. I know I'm gonna lose some speed, but is it really going to matter? This is my first venture into quarter bores, so any real world input would be helpful. I know I can always rebarrel, but I'd rather just add glass and go blast.
