By "nice" I was thinking you wanted something with nicer wood, better bluing and possibly some engraving.

For what you want to do you're better off buying a used donor rifle, or simply an action if you can find one, with the proper breech face and sending it to a gunsmith for the work. You'll get better performance, a better barrel and probably less cost.

You can do a lot better than a B&C stock on a "nice" rifle and if you're looking for performance there are a LOT better options than 25-06. The 25-06 is an acceptable deer hunting cartridge and would be a good match in a classy looking walnut stocked hunting rifle. Sounds like you want a precision rifle and there are much better options for that.
