    Rebarreling Sako 75 25-06

    Hi I have a Sako 75 in 25-06 Am think about getting new barrel, the gunsmith suggested maybe going for a 270 or 6.5x55.



    Thoughts Please

    Thanks in advance

    Only you can decide on calibre John, but if it were me I'd have it re barrelled in .270 and then I'd have my perfect rifle, but that's just me.

    +1 same as Redmist - But 30-06 would be my favorite - it will do more than the rest (heavy bullets, piggies, plains game & all that) - worldwide good ammo supply etc etc!

    30-06 to keep it simple or maybe 6.5 284, 280ai if you want something gucci.

    Depends what your intended use is for it?

    +1 with Redmist. You can do a lot with the trusty 7 x 57 and load anywhere from 100gn to 180gn heads. Perhaps John maybe likes the faster round of the 25-06, but you can load the 7x57 or the 30-06 to give you pretty much what you want for Munties, Roe, Red or even bigger stuff.

    I find I use my 25-06 less these days as I can't slow it down enough to stop the damage on smaller species - great for hinds at 200+, though!

    how do you get on with it as 25/06 ?

    284ai would be my choice.

    Hi john, just wondered why your changing from the 25-06? I dont have this calibre but was toying with the idea of getting one in the future.
