Re: 30-06

I hunt deer and elk and really like the 06 I just finished building another and yesterday put some 200gr Accubonds through the chronograph and was seeing 2660 with 58.2gr RL 22. It was 40 degrees.

The 06 has a mild recoil so you can shoot all day and not need a brake. There are shells in every store if you need them and oh yeah it will shoot a thousand yards very accurately. It will carry enough velocity and energy with the 200gr Accubond to take a bull elk at 650 yards with proper bullet placement.

If you need more the 300 WM in my opinion would be the next step.

Re: 30-06

KCEBJ said it well. My H4831 sc load duplicates his results, but I wrote his load down on my need to try list. I can't say it better, but would add I've had a 30-06 since I was 15, hope I'm never without one.
