    Regarding YOUR job.....Hmmmmm...... Speedy's an accuracy guru, he may just be your saving grace. The rest of the offerings??? I'd use them for trading stock against something worthy.

    So, if I were handed your task, I would begin by getting a Redding "Type S bushing die" which sizes only the neck. I'd be getting some Winchester 270 cases and necking them to 25 altho you've a decent chance even with plain ol' plain ol' Win 25-06....I'd load 25-06 rounds using the 115gr Nosler Ballistic Tip bullet out to firmly engrave the rifling lands and spend a few hundred rounds with it. I think I'd have a good chance of making the accuracy parameter of 1/2moa

    Ballistic Coefficient up near .5.......... with a little luck it could get 'er done.

    You'll need the luck
    First of all, great word. Not often I run into a fellow sesquipedalian member. Secondly I forgot to mention the 25-06 is also Ackley Improved... does that change things?

    Yeah his task isnít as tough. Itís not like we have brown bears in WI. I can just hope he doesnít draw a tag 😂😂😂

    Ohh Yeahh.... and a Master of Malapropism me, more.... I'll even dabble in Cockney Rhyming Slang.....

    Re the 25-06AI, nope, doesn't make it any less accurate BUT!!! You have to be EVEN MORE CAREFUL to keep the bolt lugs well lubed when loading neck-size-only with the AI version as the Ackley shoulder will tend to get tighter than the un-ackleyfied virgin. By the 4th-5th reload you'll be heeling the bolt closed fairly firmly so be careful not to gall your bolt lugs.

    That is the most stupid definition of Bravery I have ever heard. You have never seen bravery.

I have a Savage model 12 6mm BR, a Nesika .243, a Dakota .243AI, a Dakota 25.06 customized by Speedy Gonzales and a Model 70 .225 Win. Are any of these capable or do I need to go shopping??
    If I was wanting to shoot long range with one of your listed rifles, I'd use the Savage 6BR. The 25-06 is the least accurate caliber that I've personally owned, ackley or straight.
    Keep your purchased Winchester to shoot at the range for fun.

    I feel build/builder is more important than chambering in his list.... IMO 6BR don't make a Salvage magic but Speedy's probably got some things right.

    Speedy can't save a 25-06. I'd take a Savage factory rifle in 6mmbr over it and bet money.
