Re: Caliber of Choice, 30-06

Another vote for the 7mm Rem Mag. In the .30 caliber area, I'm becoming more and more fond of the little 300WSM every day. The old -06 is a great round, but not as efficient as the newer rounds.

Hard for me to call a 180g bullet propelled at 2700-2800 fps w/ 55-58g of powder inefficient, or for that matter a 150g bullet at 3000fps. Just too old a caliber to be sexy anymore. Still the most versatile, easy to use, and effective on game cartridge produced. The standard to which every cartridge is compared. Like wool is to synthetics.

A little less recoil for my medium frame body.

I can just hear Larry the Cable guy saying....

" 30-06.....It'll Git 'er done!!"

Easy to find ammo in most places with a variety of bullet weights for whatever you are after.

Of course, then there's the 308!!!

Good luck with your choice!

Re: Caliber of Choice, 30-06

I shoot .06 done a LOT of work on it. And a 30.30 mod 94. And agine if only had one rifle I realy dont know 7mm or .06. Thats how I sit. Going to get a 7mm rem mag and then a 270 win. any one want to buy my house? Just get the 7mm rem mag and be done with it. The worst thing about the 7mm is at close range lets say 62 and a 1/2 yards were is that bullet going to go after leaves a deer? By the way what gr. bullet do you all find to work the best in a .06 1 in 10 twist
