hi guys ! found this site while searching about 30.06 ballistic data. read a lot of posts about the hunting part which is sadly not possible here except on special permit and that too for classified vermin. i have been using a .22lr , 7.62 x 54 R, and a shotgun closeup. my longest shots with open sights have been at 400 meters and scoped at 750. while not a great shot i can use a rifle as the maker intended it to be. i believe in shot placement over raw power and in shooting safe. hope to learn more from the community . regards.
