30-06 is a great round to do it all. If you’re thinking of 6.5 than screw the bandwagon and go with 6.5 - 300 Weatherby . Blows Creedmoors out of the water. Are you thinking of going long range - over 400 yards for hunting or plinking?I have ordered a 30-06 custom from Weatherby about a month ago.
I plan on shooting for fun and mostly targets.
But I will be learning to hunt. At 67 I figure it's never to late to learn, and I have a very experienced stepson to help.
But with what I'm seeing these days i must have chosen the wrong cartridge.
Maybe I should have gone 6.5 Cm or the new 6.8.
Or the 270 weatherby.
