Rebarreling 25-06...8mm Rem. Mag
I have two remington BDLs that I have been shooting from way back in the early 80s (2506/8mm mag). These were not just the annual big game hunting rifles they were both used for everything. I remember one rock chuck hunting trip where the barrels on both of them had gotten so hot I couldn't even hold the wooden forend. Lets not forget the rabbits, ground squrrels, etc...good times.
So here I am thinking about rebarreling them both but should I be considering a different caliber casing combination? Thus the question, if you were faced with the same situation are there other cartidges you would rebarrel for...and yes I have lots of brass and dies for both calibers but may be there is something out there worth the change.
