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