it looks like I will be getting a 25/06 and wondering if i should pay the exta $100 on the "Long Rang Hunter"? It has an extra 4 inches worth of tube, and a check piece. Well closer to $200. Everything else they offer has a 22" barrel.

The only rifles I have with 26" barrels are a 7mm rem mag and a 300 win mag.
All I know is they are ACCURATE.

With that being said I have an encore 308 barrel that is probably only 22 or 24 inches and it will hang with them.

Depends on what bullets you are going to shoot out of it and the twist of the barrel. Is this a factory rifle or a custom?

the 25-06 really needs a 26 inch barrel or you may as well get a 243 ,

I have had two, one with a 24" barrel and now one with a 22" barrel. there is about 90 fps difference in the two and both shoot great.I wouldn't worry about it unless you want as much speed as you can get...

Remke, the 22" barrel savage will still do 3,000 fps or better with a 120 grn bullet if you handload. this is chronographed speed of course..if you were closer i would let you shoot it and decide for yourself, it is a very accurate gun....

Im sure the 22" will be "FINE". I mean, why would a company stiving to be known for making accurate weapons, put out a product that wont do just that?? I know the most of the time, the longer the better. I was just wondering what yal thought.
Headed to the gunshow tomorrow, so ya never know. I might just run into something I can make a trade on. Im taking the 300 RUM to sell or trade.
