Bought a 30-06

I picked up a 30-06 last night. A wood stocked Savage pre- accutrigger. Appears to have maybe 20 rds thru it. It is replacing one I lost in a house fire years ago. There is just something about being in the woods with an '06. Going to make it my winter project. Will post later looking for loads. Probably will run some factory stuff thru it until I get some dies etc.

I to like 4350 in the old 30-06 but I have found that I can get a little more speed out of R-22 with the heavier bullet like the 175 and up

That savage should serve you well. I have owned 4 savage rifles over the years. They all were extremely accurate. Three of them were the plain-jane 110's. The only problem with any of them was you could not let the stock get wet or it will swell and crack pretty fast. I cured that problem by getting a synthetic 7mag 112. As far as the '06 is concerned, as an overall round you can't beat it. I shoot the same load in my 03 Springfield as I did in my Savage, a healthy load of R22 under a 180gr partition. Will kill anything that walks, large or small. Not exactly a loooong range load.
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The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.

I have 2 other Savages and they both are pretty good. I have had work done on my 300 win, everything but a barrel. I will use it for longer ranges I think the 30-06 will go in the deep north woods.
