The .30-06 is pretty much the standard by which hunting rifles are judged. I've taken antelope, deer and a couple of moose with my Model 70 featherweight .30-06.
Recoil is mild, and it's fairly flat shooting.
, ya really should get a good set of earmuff type protectors to go over those plugs. I am reminded of that every morning when I put my hearing aids in my ears.
