Re: shot out?
Sounds to me like it needs a good "copper" cleaning.
If I had to guess, I would say that you have a copper build up in the last few inches of the barrel.
Swabbing a barrel is not the same as cleaning it.
Get a good copper solvent (I use Sweets 7.62), a nylon or bronze brush, follow the directions, and scrub the crap out of it. (pun)
If the patches are coming out blue, it ain't clean, yet.
And, it don't cost much.
A 30-06 should be good for between 3500 and 8000 rounds, so, take it from there.
