Agreed! I'm leaning very hard toward a 25-06AI, and later on build my magnum action into a 7mm-300WM variant of some sort. The one I really want, the Rogue, is a proprietary reamer though, so I'll either have to go with that smith, or pick something else.

I hear ya, the 25-06ai is a great choice and will be fun for vermin to deer.

That 7-300 variant is where I'm headed....

Glad to see there's someone else out there like me. I've got .223, .257, .270, 7mm/08, 7 Mag, 7mm SAUM, and .30/.30. I need something in .243, 6.5 and a different .30.

I'm leaning towards a 6.5 Creedmore, 6.5x284, and then a .338 of some manufacture.

I'd go 338/06

Well, yeah. I wouldn't shoot an elk with a 223. But I also wouldn't shoot varmints with a 338.

25-06 AI is a great choice as you can just shoot over the counter standard ammo in it to fire form the cases to Ackley specs. It may even shoot pretty good with factory 25-06 ammo. The 25-06 AI is a joy to shoot for what it can do. Recoil is nothing.

We should combine our collections, then we'd have every bore diameter from 224 - 308 covered.

That's what I'm thinking, plus, with the right load, it could be an excellent varmint or predator killer as well as deer. Not to mention that basically every gas station, grocery store, hardware store and feed store where I hunt carries 25-06. Not that I've ever found myself without ammo on a hunt, but there's a first time for everything, right? Never know, I could end up on an MLD doe patrol and run out of ammo.....Well, I could happen if I had friends with that kind of hunting property. Right? Anybody? :-D

No. Some just do it much faster than others.

Okay. Basically, it's because I'm that dude that wants something different. The AI rounds don't kill stuff any deader, but sometimes, like with the 280AI, they can mimic a magnum, minus the recoil, muzzle blast etc, with less powder and barrel wear. Also, I enjoy shooting long range, out to 1000 yards. The added velocity makes that easier and more fun. But really, it's just so I satisfy my desire to be different.

Well, it's settled, at least until I actually pony up the cash and order the barrel.....anything could happen at that point. For now, I've decided on 25-06AI.

If you want something like a 25-06ai, i will DEFINITELY go with the 6.5mm version to take advantage of GOOD bullets.....

I certainly considered that, BUT, my 6.5-300WSM should be done very soon and it will cover the 6.5mm slot in the collection. On the other hand, that WSM is going to be a heavy beast, so maybe a somewhat lighter weight 6.5 wouldn't be a bad idea.

A gunsmith buddy of mine does a 6.5x284 necked up to .277 to shoot 170gr bullets. Looking at 2900 fps range in a 28" barrel

30-06 makes a simple conversion to 9.3x62mm. You appear to have all the "faster is better" bases covered already. Build something that shoots heavy bullets at moderate speeds.

Didn't read the other replies. I really don't see anything to be gained in amongst your current lineup of cals. A thumping .338 or larger or a screaming .22 is the only thing I'd consider.

should add, the 9.3x62 is true "bang/flop" round that does minimal meat damage and a handloaders dream. seems to like just about anything you choose to feed it. 250-320gr bullets available and its suitable for anything in north america as well as most anything else on the planet. And suprisingly recoil is not bad at all (my 14 yr old daughter shoots mine from time to time. I think it's the most power versus investment in recoil to be had.

Did you ever end up doing this build. I am in the same boat as you right now. I have a lefty savage in 270 and I am leaning pretty good on the 25-06AI or 257 Weatherby.

Wow, this is a blast from the past! No, I didn't end up doing that build. I ended up selling or taching that rifle off. I still don't have a .257 caliber. I ended up getting a lathe, and with the help of Stick1 and a few others, figured out how to build my own rifles.

You have the key slots covered already: 5.56mm, 6mm, 6.5mm, 7mm, and 7.62mm - the five calibers I think everyone should own at least one of.

You don't have a heavy hitter though; I'm surprised no one has mentioned 300WM. Otherwise a mainstream 6.5 cal like creed to go with your wildcat would be my second choice, because 6.5 is so ideal for hunting in Texas. A .25 caliber like 25-06 or .257WBY could squeeze in between the .243 and the 6.5x300 too.

280AI is basically identical to your 7mm Rem Mag, unless you plan to sell the 7mm I wouldn't consider it. From my pov even a .270 is too similar.

You seem to have a few high velocity small to medium bore guns. So why not something bigger. I am not sure if a 300 Norma Mag will work in that action, but that would be something to consider.

I am not sure, long action caliber, that you have not listed, 28 Nosler? 416 Remington Mag?

If it was a short action or a longer action, I would have a lot of suggestions.
