Cant help with the 25 06 but my t3 hunter in 308 is a hammer. Four shot groups at about .75 @ 100yds and still nicely under MOA at 200 and 300yards. I dont like the plastic trigger gaurd. Dont loose the mags LOL $60 a pop at my local shop. Nice clean light adjustable trigger and very accurate and light weight just hate the plastic trigger gaurd

I bought he same gun when they came out with the stainless version.I forget the exact load but I worked up a load with 100gr barnes triple shocks.Itwas the most accurate load and rifle I ever owned.It would literally shoot every load into a little tiny ragged hole at 100 yards.Like a fool,I wanted a different gun and sold it.

I have the T# stainless with laminate stock in 243. Its a great shooting gun. very smooth bolt action and is great to clean after the season. I highly recommend it.

We have two T3's. One in 270WSM the other in 30-06. Both are 3shot 1/2" and 5shot 3/4" group rifles with handloads and factory loads.

Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.

Glad to hear this!! I'm gonna pick up the 25-06 tomorrow. Any advice on factory loads? I have no experience with this caliber

IMO one of the best on the market. I have a Tikka T3 Lite Stainless in 270 WSM. It is without a doubt one the most accurate high power rifles I have ever owned. Will shoot 1/2" 3 shot groups and not just one time either! I am sure you will like it.

With the 25-06 choice of bullet weight including factory loads depends a lot on rate of twist. My rem 700 likes 100+ grain bullets and I can't get it to shoot a tight group with 75 gr.

You won't find a more accurate and smooth rifle for the price! Winchester Silvertips shoot great!!
