The Truth About .30-06 Online

There are many boutique rounds .30-06 these days that all seem to be raging. They tend to come and go. Today’s 6.5 Creedmoor is yesterday’s .300 WSM etc. These new cartridges have a short but spectacular life … only lasting until the next best thing arrives.

Some would argue with me .30-06 about this, but I ask you this question: In the next 100 years, do you think rifles will still be made in 30-06 or 6.5 Creedmore? .300 WSM? 6mm Creedmoor? .224 Valkyrie? I dare to surpass them all except .45-70 .30-06. 

Except for the ballistic advantage of a heavy bullet with a higher ballistic coefficient, the .30-06 pushes at the same or faster fps as the .308 and other relatively low-power cartridges. The first is the widespread availability of .30-06 rounds. You’ll find .30-06, where bullets are sold here in the US. But in the case of the .308 (7.62 NATO), it is practically the same.
