When I was a kid my Uncle was always talking about how he hated 30-06s. I can't really remember why, but that always stuck in my head and I have never owned one because of it.
Recently I had the chance to purchase a Winchester model 70 in 30-06. The previous owner provided me with a 150g Nosler Accubond load, so I wanted to work up some longer range stuff. Had some 168g TSX BT Matchgrade and some Hornaday 150g Interbonds. Did not take me long to see why the venerable 30-06 is so popular. She was very easy to please and showed good results with very little effort. The shape of this cartridge ensures smooth and reliable, feeding and extracting. Shame on me for not trying this great cartridge sooner.

The results, after shots one and two I made scope adjustments, then fired 3,4,5.
