If you need to use 30/06 for rapid "mag dump" defense, you might be better served with a weighty rifle, like the Garand. I would use a 30/06 as a concentrated aimed fire weapon to hold off aggressors at more than a few hundred yards, in which case I would be happy with a bolt gun. I would rather have your scenario consisting of 308W rounds, then go for a SA M1A for semi-auto "havoc in a hurry" (that phrase just cracks me up!), or concentrated accurate fire.

And that is the wonderful about dreaming - we all have them!!!

Both the 30/06 and 308 are great cartridges and there will be plenty to be had, if you don't already have....

But that's just me, everyone's opinions and desires differ.

Did Winny make a Model 100 in this caliber?
No, biggest was .308. I have one, done the firing pin recall, have used it more than a few times, it is a sweet shooter, but not meant for heavy rate of fire. It's got a reasonably light profile barrel, and only holds a few rounds anyway. Good rifle, just not a fighting weapon IMO.
