Just noticed you are interested in a 30-06. Don't get me wrong for I own around five 30-06 rifles, which is a fine cartridge. But, you might want to consider a 308 Win instead of a 30-06. Will not bore you with reasons for a 308 Win instead of a 30-06.

I know just about nothing on balistics. I've done a little reading on them.

but what I CAN tell you, is that right now, I can go buy 30-06 ammo at wal-mart. it's sitting on the shelf, right along with the .270 stuff. those 2 calibers and shotgun ammo is all they have.

I've not seen .308 at all since the panic started. I had to order some off the internet and it took 4 weeks to be delivered despite being told that it was in stock.


so if I had it to do over again...I'd look at the 30-06 simply based on ammo availablilty at the current moment.

This is exactly why I'm looking at one. Exact same circumstance. Three walmarts around me have 30-06, 270 and 243 in stock so I figure why not get one of those. No 223 or 308 have come in in a while. Also I figure a 06 has more power but ill never really need the extra umph over a 270 which is aa 30-06 case, .270 projectile and ballistics are only mimimally less. Just talked to a friend today who may sell me a 270 or a 300 winmag( the latter I have not looked for ammo for)

Inexpensive rifles:

Marlin X7
Weatherby Vanguard / Howa 1500
Savage Axis
Ruger American

These first four are all good rifles, take your pick. I like the first two especially, the Savage is slightly below them. I haven't had a chance to take an American apart and really see how it's built yet.

Mossberg ATR

The Mossberg is OK, but just not up to the standard set by the other top 4.


Remington 770

A smoking POS. An embarrassment to American rifle building. Crudely made, crudely finished and fugly. I wouldn't own one if it were free.

It's no wonder Remington has dropped it.

Do yourself a favor and get whichever one of the top 4 you can get the best deal on.

Every Axis I have shot has extraction problems.

We actually have all common rifle calibers here locally except 22lr and 223. We have anything from 22 mag, to 7mm mag at walmart. That includes 308.

The Remington 770 are built pretty cheaply but I wouldn't say there a pos I mean I've had a problem! It's accurate at 145 yards which is the furthest I've shot it and I have had about 200 rounds through it and haven't had a problem yet!
