Yes - the cost is quite awesome! The cleaning is so easy as well (since the manual says to not disassemble the bolt).

while it's not the perfect rifle, i think it's safe to say the gun is more accurate then i am....which in the end is all that really matters
Exactly my thoughts on this accurate rifle.

25-06 is a very, very versatile caliber. Doesn't kick "real" hard, and can be used for all sorts of varmints (4 and 2 legged), deer, and in a pinch, even for elk and black bear. I don't plan on hunting all of that, but, it's nice to know that it can do it.

I had it at the range a couple of weeks ago for the first time and I was getting 2-3" groups at 100 yards shooting from the bench. I was using Remington Core-Lokt 100gr PSP. It was all I could find the day before we went to the range. But, I was not very steady. I only had the fore-stock supported on a bag, I was stabilizing the rear on my shoulder. I'm diabetic and my blood sugar was all over the place that day, and I just wasn't that steady. We'll see how it, and I, work in a few weeks.

I've got some dies now and I'm gonna' start working up a few loads: a good varmint load, a good deer load, and a good plinking load.

This is really a damn nice rifle. And when you factor in the cost, it's a quite extraordinary rifle.

Like the rest of you who've purchased this rifle, I will be enjoying mine.
when you get some loads worked up and dialed in to your rifle, you also find your group sizes getting smaller! 25-06 is a great caliber. i have one in the Marlin XL7 and i really like it for the same reasons you do. 25-06 is an easy round to reload. enjoy your rifle and good luck!
