i will say this, the 30-06 is in my lists of favorites, simply because of what it can do, what it has done for over 100 years and all the other cartridges that have come from it. the 30-06 has given us many other fine cartridges that are downright awesome in their own right.
it has give us the 25-06, the 270, the 280, the 308, the 243 the 7mm-08, and so many, many more. just think that without the 30-06, how many fine cartridges may never have come to be. it's been to war, taken game on probably every continent on the face of the planet. wow! that's some history right there.
