    Allen,

    I have a mint condition Remington Classic 25-06 that I put a Fujinon 3-9x scope on and it weighs in at 8lb 15 oz. with a one piece long action base, rings and scope.

    I have only shot some Rem 120 grain bullets through it for basic sighting in for deer season. They shot under 1". However, I didn't use it because I have my Ithaca LSA-65 in 25-06 and I just can't stop using it. Everyone has a favorite gun. This Ithaca is mine.

    Allen, I had 2 25-06's for awhile. One was a Weatherby Ultralight which I sold because I always seem to take my Browning B-78. The B-78 is not heavy by any means and with a 26" barrel it is about the same length as a bolt gun with a 22" tube. It shoots lights out. The Weatherby shot about 1 moa with selected loads and certainly was plenty accurate for the hunting I did with it. The Weatherby had a great trigger and was around 7 pounds or less with a fairly large scope. Tom gun)

    I had similar issues and ended up with a Tikka T3 Lite SS in 2506 with a Kahles scope. VERY light and shoots like a dream.

    Thanks

    I am leaning that way also. How was accuracy with yours? Any idea what the weight was scoped?

    Thank you

    Re: WTB-Lightweight 25 Cal accurate bolt gun

    With the Tikka, 110gr Accubonds and IMR 4350 45.5gr, I routinely shoot 3 at 100yards that are touching. The Kahles scope is 14 ounces. I took a big Oklahoma buck quartering away this fall with it and the Accubond impressed me as it went through lungs and the off side shoulder.

    I pulled my targets that only had groups that all were touching from the Tikka and they include Nosler 85gr. BT using RL19 and Sierra 75gr HP with H4831.

    It's a dandy.

    Thanks for the Tikka info.


    Shoot me a PM on the wssm. I have a 243 wssm in a browning synthetic and love it, and a 25, imho, stepps it up enough for my out of state plans.


    Thanks
