Also, I drive a 150gr GS at 3150fps and compare that to a 140gr in a 7mm Rem mag and I think you will see the 7mm Rem mag has nothing over a hand loaded 06. The 30-06 is just now reaching it's stride after all these years due to modern rifles, new powders new bullets, along with better brass and primers.
It don't do any good to argue with you rabid fans of the 06 so I ain't even gonna try
. You've got your view and I've got mine and neither one is gonna change their mind. I personnaly use a 270 win more than anything else but I don't hunt moose either even though I would shoot one with it if I came across one and had a tag.
