25-06 stainless lite twist rates
First post here, thanks for having me. I have a 25-06 T3x stainless lite, synthetic on order from a local shop. This will be my first Tikka, actually first brand new gun purchase, as I'm a fan of old classics and primarily hunt with my old .270 model 70.
I was flipping through the catalog and noticed that the stainless lite in 25-06 is listed with a 1:14 twist, while the stainless hunter is 1:10. I'll be using this gun with heavier bullets in the 115-120 grain range for deer and antelope.
I'm wondering if I should change my order to the stainless hunter and replace the wood stock with a synthetic to get the 1:10, or if there is a way I can change my order to specify a 1:10. It seems strange to supply the 25-06 with a 1:14 as the round excels in the heavier bullet range, and is more of a big game round than a varmint gun.
Any insights or advice? Thanks!
