Realy...One of my friends has a .3006 I gave him 10 years ago.
He has shot Caribou, over 5 Moose and a bunch of Deer. and he loves it and I love the one I own.
If I get my hands on a good Springfield action that measurs to spec I grabbit. its easy to make a Rifle that shoots under one inch at 100 yards.
use a 165 gr Bullit by Nosler SBT with a touch of Dupont IMR 4064 (44.8) i also use the 150gr Nosler Partition with a touch of Dupont IMR 4064 using 54.3grs there SBT work better at 500 yards the .3006 is one of the Three kings for hunting.
I have used Reloader-15 on both. It works real good also.
Thanks Keith..I'll pick some up and try it..

Alliant Powder - Reloader's Guide
“When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty to throw off such governments. …” Jefferson

We are very close to this point now.
