    Mine ruined my 16th birthday. All I wanted was some dress clothes or something cool, and ended up just getting the old Win. Model 70 that I started using at the age of twelve instead (How sucky can you get). It has also made a lot of critters have a sucky day, over the last 40 years.

    1. If you own a 30-06, and we all should have at least one, you really don't need another rifle for probably 95% of the worlds game animals that you might be lucky enough to hunt some day.

    2. It is a classic caliber that is chambered in hundreds of different makes and models of rifles to include the classy Winchester Model 70 with controlled round feed and the Ruger 1B single-shot.

    3. Ammo is available everywhere but if you are a reloader you have hit the motherlode. There are so many fantastic bullets out there for this cartridge. Some of my favorites are Nosler Accubonds, Partitions, and E-tips.

    4. It's a simple cartridge to load for and many different powder and bullet combinations work, and work very well. IMR4350 and H4350 with 150-200 gr. bullets seems to be a constant in any loading site a person might look at.

    5. The 30-06 is a hard hitting accurate cartridge that has a recoil level that most everyone can handle very easily. It has won it's fair share of shooting competitions. My own personal 30-06 will put three 165 gr. Accubonds or Partitions touching at 100 yards as long as I do my part, and I have not shot a lot with it at 500 yards for groups, but again if I do good it will shoot a 3 1/2" 3-shot group at 500 yards. That is with a fixed 4x Leupold scope no less!

    6. During World War I up and into the Vietnam war the 30-06 was a great contributor to saving our soldiers and is honored in the hearts of many of these folks who served our country.

    7. Jack O'Connor really liked the .270 Winchester and it was one of his favorites, but even he pointed out and felt that the 30-06 was the better all-around cartridge.

    8. Every one of us knows one or more people who shoot this wonderful cartridge.

    9. It's a classic that will never die.

    1. Mine sucks 'un poquito' for long range work.

    2. Idk?

    Its the 's meow for deep woods/brush jobs; was, and still is, very popular in the deep woods of New England and PA (where I cut my teeth as a deer hunter).

    I still love my Rem 7600 carbine-even if it sucks for shooting antelope at 1km.

    Yeah he did, but it wasn't good reasoning.

    You sure got it right with #7. O'Connor even admitted the '06 was better.
