Instead of explaining it all. We had quality wood stock m-14's and generally 175 gr hpbt or AP rounds. M-60 were a combo of ball/tracer or anti vehicle AP/tracer.What bullet weight was typically uses in your m14 and m60?
It is dead. Look at it compared to the beautiful cartridges just standing there on the end looking like a big ugly decrepit dummy. Kind of makes me want to puke and the WSM isn't much better with its stupid pushed in short fat bullet squatting like it is taking a dump next the that sexy stout 6.5 PRC with its long naked bullet extended like it is just waiting to jump out of the brass and pounce on 900 lb bull elk and tear it apart.
Yeah, take a hike 30-06 you are dead to me with your fugly lead tips peeking out from your big ugly mouth and girly shoulders.

I've never understood why so many shooters talk down when it comes to savage rifles when it has been my experience that shots like that are very common. I too own a 110 model C. She is an older rifle before the accutrigger. Shooting milk jugs at 500 yards was boring but than, that was the furthest I could shoot. Try your loads using 165 grainers , you may see your group shrink even more. Fantastic shooting btw.This load is averaging 2886 out of a 22" barrel. CCI 250 and Lapua brass.
'06 went on life support soon after the 7mm RM was released.06 isn't even dieing let alone dead. If you are talking about looks, stand a 264 Win Mag in there. It will make a 6.5 PRC look like a "wanna be". One of the sexiest looking rounds out there. Sure it takes a long action but if you can't carry an extra inch in your hand, you can't carry it elsewhere either.
This is exactly what is killing many of the older cartridges and why 30-06 is still lingering.Faster twist barrels are bring a resurgence of old calibers every day. Think what you want.
