I had my buddy at Apache Machine and Custom put this together from parts I sent him. Older “C” prefix 700 long action. HS Precision ADL stock, Trigger Tech Special, and a Bartlein #3 contour .257 barrel. If it shoots anything like the others he’s built it will be a laser.

If there is a cartridge that just feels plain good to shoot, I'd say it may be the 25-06. Not too heavy on the recoil, not too light... just right.
I'm just getting to the final touches on a load of 90gr Absolute Hammers with a Krieger re-barreled Rem700.

I planned on doing a fast twist,with the thought of shooting the Hammers, but sporter weight barrels were unobtainium when I started and I didn’t want to wait any longer. The day the rifle was completed, I got a notification that a vendor had some Brux .257 1-7 twist barrels available….

Looks good!
I'm assuming from your earlier post you went with a 1:10 twist.
Be aware, a friend of mine ordered a barrel last month for his match rifle, his expected deilery is March 2022.

So if somebody has a barrel in stock, jump on it!

I got a sales flier from a barrel maker the other day for a Savage sporter 24" in 25-06.
Delivery within 6 days.:oops:

But i just had my right wrist operated on, left wrist next week. Off work for at least another month.

Its a 10 twist. I had it and got tired of waiting.
1-7” was too tight anyway. For the velocities that a 25-06 will be running, 1-8” is about as tight as you want to go. 1-8.5” is probably better. I’m sure you’ll be happy with your 1-10”.

Realistically, hotrods like a 25-06, and tight twists don’t mix all that well. After blowing up a bunch of bullets in a 1-8” 6mm Remington, I wish I had gone with a 1-8.5” or 1-9” and scratched 115gr bullets off my list.
