Based on experience, I imagine I will continue getting notifications for this thread for years to come. That is how timeless 30-06 is.
Ive been buying cases of 168 grn FGMM every couple weeks for a month or so now at $185 shipped, Im up to 6 cases. Seems to work good in one of my 1903s but I really bought it for my Model 70 nthat is being rebarreled as we speak. I cant reload/buy components for that price.Gents,
I'm a fan of the '06 myself and have a few questions based on using a 10 twist bbl.
1. Anyone shot 155's and how did they do? Hodgdon's manual has them at 3150ish with H4350. Don't know how accurate, but if it groups that'd be worth a look. Should I just confine my search to 175's and heavier bullets?
2. How's barrel life compared to .308, assuming both would be loaded slightly faster than factory?
3. What benefits to going Ackley improved? Down sides?
4. My current chamber was cut with a SAAMI reamer. Is there a better "all around" reamer?
5. Any factory ammo good out to 1K? @pmclaine?
Thanks and God bless America
So what bottom trigger gaurd/magwell are you using here? I am having a heck of a time finding anything that fits a 30-06 in a stagger-stack 10-round configuration. I can find double stacked 300WM mags, but not 30-06..30 06 with 208s running at 2790 out of a 23" barrel. I believe this to be a fast barrel, but 2700 is completely obtainable. This gives you more than enough to pack energy out to distance.
30-06 will never not be my primary hunting cartridge. 308 is my primary learning ballistics like a boss cartridge. 6.5 CM is my man bun cartridge.
And my 300 RUM is my "I'm blessed with .5" more than average but wish I had 2" more for that BDE" cartridge... that costs me a eff ton to shoot.
And then there's the .223 which frankly annoys me... and yet... doesn't. I should see someone about that...
It sounds ok to me. There’s an answer to all our madness- lol.
Still archived. Some good reading there, you should look into it.Those aren't his blog articles. I have a feeling since German copyrighted everything he eventually got it off the archives. Accurate Shooters is very protective of him and his departure from the shooting scene. He made an almost complete split from the shooting community. He's a corporate attorney so who knows WTF happened, lol.
Yes, they are written by him for Accurate Shooters. But he totally took down his very informative blog articles. Like he took his toys and went home. People started downloading them from Internet Archives and he blocked that per the copyright. Never mind copyrighted or not people were printing and saving his stuff for years. Personally, I think the guy is extremely intelligent with a little brat inside him.With all due respect ,Have you looked at the articles ? They are German's.
If you can get Internet Archives to bring up his blog articles we would appreciate workable links. All I get is the pages never existed to archive. Links that used to work in the archives no longer work.Still archived. Some good reading there, you should look into it.
