Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

Hmmmm... I DROOL when I think of a 700 Classic in 8 x 57..

However, I need another firearm as much as I need another hole in my head......

Being an old, fat fart going through a divorce, I'd be better off SELLING some of the guns that I have and don't use..

Yeah, I was actually considering buying this to keep unfired as a collectors piece. Its kinda hard to pay $650 for something that will sit in the back of my safe and never be used. Judging by your replies I dont think its a super deal, however I dont see ANY listed on the net in the 25-06 chambering. Ill probably end up passing on it and then regretting it 5 years later like every other time Ive thought about buying a gun for collecting.

I had the 35 whelen and had a hard time unloading the rifle... I ended up trading for a nice ruger 300 win mag.

Salty- I would have bought that .35 Whelen from you in a heartbeat!
Had a 700 Classic in .35 Whelen and spent some coin customizing it. New B&C synthetic stock, glass bedded, 11 degree crown cut and trigger job to 3 1/2 crisp lbs! 3 x 9 Leupold VXII on it. Killed plenty of deer and bear with it. And as for accuracy, maybe I got a lucky one, but that baby shot 1" groups regularly @100yds with my handloads. Like an A__hole, I sold it to buy a new .300WSM. I'm happy with the .300, but I very much miss that Whelen. I'd do the same thing over again if I got my hands on yours!

I have one chambered in 25.06 and it's no doubt my favorite rifle. It will shoot anything i feed it with good accuracy. I didn't buy it as a collector gun i bought it to hunt with and it see's more action than any of the guns i currently own. It's not to heavy or to light, it's just right and a pleasure to shoot.I paid $600 for mine 6yrs ago. The Classic is a very nice rifle and i would love to own a few more.

There are no doubt some that are more desirable than others for the reason you stated: they were chambered in "uncommon" chamberings for a US-made rifle.The 8X57mm Mauser is an example of this.

Others I would consider more desirabble would be the 250 Savage, 35 Whelen, 375 H&H, 300 H&H, 7X57mm, 220 Swift, 257 Roberts, and perhaps the 300 Savage, rounds that people would value more as shooters rather than as scarce collector's items......
