    I am helping a budy of mine who works on mausers. He is doing mine. I need to get a 25-06 finish reamer. I can get a new one from midway for $85. I found one on fleabay for $30. Now is when things are starting to stink. The one on auction states the guy know nothing about it. But almost all of his auctions(both current and completed) are about guns. He has a perfect feed back. So do I buy the used one or not? I don't want a bad barrel and reamer. What do you all think that I should do? I am thinking about spending the extra for the one on midway.

    Ray, the one on ebay is more than likely used. It may be sharp and then again it may not. It may be in spec, an then it may not. A new one will be sharp and in spec. Choose wisely young grasshopper! ;) :D :D :D

    Buy the new one. Atleast that way you know you will get quality.

    Why don't you look at the 257 Ackley Improved. It will do everything your 25-06 will do with 3 grains less powder and less recoil. I own two of them and would never go to a 25-06.

    Because I am already set up for the 26-06. Also I don't mind recoil. I would like to but that would be about another $100 or more in supplies.

    IBTRUKN, I got plenty of time. It will be pay day when I buy the barrel.
