You can't find a good heavy 30-06. I've had a Tikka 695 for 16 years and two years ago I had it modified and now I have a kick ass long range 30-06. With scope and all it now weighs 15 lbs and rocks.
If you want a heavy 06, then I'd say get a Tikka t3 the have it immediately upgraded as I did.

Have a 30-06 in a Tikka T3 stainless came in fourth the other day out of 15 teams. Like a 06 for many things hunting and targets.
A friend of mine built a 280AI a real sweet shooting rifle 22min at a thousand
with 3100fps on a 162 Amax very impressive. Local shoots are saying no more 300 wins or mags. Just for now thinking about it.
The 06 is hard to beat....
