Find an accurate load with a good LR bullet in that '06 and don't look back. There is plenty of performance for your needs (deer at 750).
If recoil is a problem, there are ways around that...brakes, pads, and what-not.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.

put your good taste in calibers to the test,load up a couple of hundred rounds each for your 270 win,and 30-06 and have a rolling shoot off all summer with these two calibers,granted your custom will out shoot them,but with great reloads you should be able to challenge yourself and that the whole idea is it not? congrat''s on haveing such great rifles at your young age!!! buy testing two rifles you will put half the wear on both of them..... everythings a compromise choise carefully,
Great post by the way!!!

I to wish i could find a good non magnum load, but i think im gonna buy a .300wsm and be done with it. I think it will do the job on most game, deer out to 1k and elk to under 800.
