i am looking for a good allaroud gun and am having problems finding one i was looking at .300 weatherby mag but a 30-06 would do the job. i just cant find one for my price and discription? any help:} :jet:
I can guarantee that the Rem 700 in 30-06 will take a deer down with a 150 grain round. That's what I used last season. Yesterday, just for fun I blasted a filled gallon water jug with my Rem 700. Now that's a fun sight for sure. :assult: :jaw:
True, but also with about a 10th of the available cartridge loadings of the 30-06.
A nice 30-06 bolt action rifle (Remington, Savage, Winchester, Tikka, Weatherby, etc), will serve you perfectly for anything that walks on 90% of the planet. Pretty much anything but a few African giants.
220-grain 30-06 bullets will drop the big stuff, while 150's will be perfect for deer sized. You can also drop down to 125's for smaller animals.
Again, From Experience ...Go with the .300 Win Mag...Especially for Moose!
If you want 1-2 shot Kills...you can use Lighter 150 gr. Bullets for deer and heavier 180 gr. for Elk and Moose, and if you go for Grizzly 180 -220 gr. bullets. Ammo is available any where and Cheaper Than Weatherby ammo !!!
You mention price being a factor (it is for all of us really), so, here it goes and don't everybody throw rocks. Check out Wal-Mart. See what they have. I looked there at a Rem 700 30-06 w/ 3x9 scope for something like $480.
