The 30-06 is a great cartridge and the reason it has been so popular for 100 years. With those GS bullets Rockymtnmt uses it can reach out and kill stuff. 177 grain with .638 or so BC. All of my '06's have been accurate rifles. More efficient cartridges have been developed now like the 300 wsm
and most people go with those but the 30-06 will still kill stuff just as dead as it did years ago.
