then you would wrong in your beliefs about the 30-06. it's been proven to work on game and men for over 100 years. that's not an opinion, but fact.
the right rifle, the proper bullet and the person behind the trigger, the 30-06 has taken game on may continents at well over 400 yards.
in WWI and WWII and countless other battles, the 30-06 has taken out men in excess of 800 yards.
you would be suprised at the versatility and capabilty of the 30-06. there is a very good reason that it has held it's place of honor among cartridges for over 100 years. and why just about everyone that makes a rifle still chambers them in 30-06. part of the reason i have owned at least one rifle in 30-06 for over 35 years. simple fact is, it still gets the job done.
