Me too. I'm the only guy at the range who shoots a heavy barreled 30-06, but everyone seems to understand why. The 30-06 with modern bullets is a great gun.

WOW this 1 is old . since then I bought a 700 in 7mm rem mag. Still got the 721 .06 and I am all set up & reloading what a defrence best thing I ever did. But in hind sight 7mm is going by by. Dont care for belted mag. Perty shure I am going for a 700 in 308 any way 30 cal. But after reading all this agine its got me rethinking .06 why not a pair of them 1 for my son? Ofcorse there both MINE!

CVA54, go with the 06's and you'll be happy. No sense in me being redundant as others have already mentioned all the pro's. I own one, wouldn't sell it and love it.

I agree with the fact that the ol' 30-06 is a universal cartridge and will never be out of date. On the other hand, I love my 7mmRemMag and wouldn't sell it lol.
