Ruined shoulder or not, why’d the dude take his ball and leave? Like he gave a big “F U” to the entire community, destined to die with all his secrets. His prerogative, but seems like a bit of a douchey move, IMO.

Is it relevant to say, that the 30-06 is a veteran through & through... the only US "RIFLE" cartridge that has helped to win not 1 but 2 World Wars. There is not another American made cartridge today that can boast those credentials... not even the venerable 308 Win!

Is breathing relevant ?
The tried and true 06 is and will always be the most iconic .30 cal American hunting cartridge.
Much to chagrin of other cartridge fan boy's, It'll always be popular and available on gun shop shelves around the world until they ban firearms/hunting/shooting.

Most shooters on this forum think the 30-06 is a magnum cartridge, lol. Thus, the 25-06 is magnum too. And that the .224 needs a brake. That someone is working one necked down to a .112 with a BC that will eliminate windage on the reticle and the knob all together but the brake stays.

lol, Ok, are going to let the Mannequin Head Slide? Story? ex-target practice?
Got a call from someone on the highway that they saw a human head.......I thought that would be cool to check out.

Luckily it was just a hairdressers training aid.

Im taking it to friends farm for a target.
