1-10" Twist is good for 180-grain in .30-06.
The lenght of the barrel between 22-24".
Action - Remington
Best all around bullet weight - 165/168-grain

This is still most popular caliber and you can buy factory ammo almost in all convenience stores [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Ready to learn

30-06 for all-around North Americian Hunting...

Hello again,
(1) Just looking for some "expert" opinions on the venerable ole' 30-06 for North American big-game hunting. With all the new cartridges out there today, has does it stack up?
(2) What is a good barrel length & twist for 30-06 180-gr bullets for deer & elk hunting?
(3) What are some good loads for this setup? Note that while I'm not looking for benchrest accuracy, I would like to stay with something that would give me around 1" groups @ 100 yds.

Thanks for you help,
Ernie B
