I just finished a similar project. Dad had his A-Bolt 25.06 stolen several years ago, along with my BAR and several other guns. I am replacing them for him and couldn't afford another A-Bolt so I built him a 25.06 from what I could afford.

Started with a Interarms (Zastava) Mark X commercial 98 barreled action in 30.06. Had a heck of a time removing the barrel from the reciever after 43 years. Bought a 25.06 barrel from Midway. Did a light bead blast rather than polish. Then parkerized the barrel and reciever with Shooters Solutions bake on parkerizing. Dropped it into a composite stock also from Midway. Rented a hand powered chamber reamer and used plastiguage and a box of new ammo to get the headspace correct. Mounted a Nikon 3-9x42 in Millet rings and bases. Except for scope and mounts have about $260 in the rifle. It will shoot better than 1/2" at 100 yards in 5 shots.

Waiting on my Dad to get back from his deer camp to find out how it worked for him.

The Mark X/Midway 25.06 killed a 7 point buck field dressed 185 lbs on the cotton scales, and a doe that weighed 155. Heart/lung shots at 125 yards and 70 yards. Dad says point of impact was at point of aim. I'll take his word for it.

83 and better health than me. Happy he is enjoying the new gun.
