You can't teach a hunter it's wrong to kill.

MY son and i have 2 different rifle's in this caliber one is a Tikka T-3 and the other is a Remington model 700. We have not had any problems with either gun. Both are in about the same price zone.
wake me up early, be good to my dogs and teach my children to pray.

I own a 7mm and even though i have used 30-06 the perfomance in my opinion there really isn't mucmuch difference. you are moving from a .284 cal to a .308 cal, the powder difference is only about 5 grain weight per load on the max level where as the 7mm has a max of 60 gr.wt using a 150gr barnes tsx hpbt. where the same 150 gr.bullet only in 30 cal maxes at 55 gr.wt.looking ot the Coef's the 30 cal will have slightly more kenetic energy simply because of a larger slug with less powder load.

I have a 30-06 Savage rifle, I haven't had the chance to shoot it yet, but it came with a scope and was scoped-in or sighted in at the factory. So it is supposed to be ready to shoot out of the box.

I won a small jackpot at the casino a couple months ago and so I went to Bass Pro Shop and ordered this gun. Now I just need to go out and try it out.

I have a Remington 700 Sendero SF II in the 7mm Rem Mag. I've been shooting for 18 years and the Remington 700 model has been the best I ever handled. I shot it in my current caliber, 30-06 and 270. All very accurate!

I don't think anybody makes a bad 30-06.I have over my life time owned Remmies,Winchesters,Brownings,plus some others.Now I'm down to just 1,a Marlin bolt action.

I shoot a savage 110GXP3 package gun (scope and sling included) and for the money its hard to beat and it has the accu-trigger. Also have a Tikka T3 Hunter its also a good gun.

I shoot a weatherby vanguard in 30-06, together with Fusion 165's I've found it to be serious venison medicine.
You can have my guns, when you pry them from my cold dead hands.

Check out the Marlin XL7 in 30-06. I just bought a new one chambered in 25-06. These rifles are great!! They have what is called a Pro-Fire trigger which is much like the Savage Accu-Trigger. This rifle sells new for around $300 to $339. Comes with a weaver base for mounting of a scope. Has a synthetic stock and fluted bolt. No open sites though.

It is very accurate. After topping it off with a scope I was able to get a 3 shot group (cutting each other) at 100 yards.

I would recommend this rifle to anyone wanting a new rifle that is on a budget in these hard times.

My personal flavor is the 7mm-08 using the Federal Premium w/Barnes TSX 140-gr - If I was not using the 7mm-08 then my choice would be the .308 Win as I used last year to take my buck at 200 yards.  No tracking as he dropped in his tracks where he stood.

I use my old 6.5 Swede for deer and moose.  I have a 30-06 and I've used it a few times for moose, but my 6.5 is more than adequate.  A lot less noise and recoil than a 7mm Mag or a 30-06.

Robin Hood had it right: As long as a man has deer and beer, he needs very little government.
