What type(s) of 30/06 do you own & shoot?


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have actually seen this question on another site and found the number of different answers to be pretty interesting. I'd figure that the number of rifles out there in '06 is rivaled (passed??) only by the number of rifles chambered in 30/30, but there are lots of different types of rifles made in 30/06. So what type/make are your rifle(s) so chambered?

Oh, and pictures would be nice too!!


I'll add some pics: first is a pair of BARs, top is 1968 GRII and bottom is 1969 GRII, second picture is a pair of M70s a 1952 standard rifle and a Featherweight XTR bottom, third picture is an Interarms MKX on top and a Ruger RSM on the bottom. Last is a close-up of those purty BAR GRIIs

Husqvarna Mauser.
Refinished the wood to deep brown with alkanet red hues. 18-20 hand rubbed layers of Tung Oil.
Cut the barrel down to 19 inches.
Put a Leupold Ultra Light 2.5X scope on it.
Carries and shoots like a dream.

150 grain to 220 grain round nose. Just shoots them to a slightly different point but great consistent groups. I have it zero'd in now for 150 grainers.

My Husqvarna is a .270 in a M4100 with 20.5" barrel. Very smooth action! Yours sounds great, I remember when you bought it, actually! Great rifles!

I've had three in the past:

Remington Model 742 Woodsmaster, complete with faulty extractor. Honestly, I have no idea what happened to this rifle.
Remington Model 7600. I really liked this rifle. It was stolen.
Browning A-Bolt Hunter. Shoots well. Still have it.

TNHunter--

Wow, your rifle and set up look uncannily like MINE! My barrel is about an inch" shorter is all. She is beautiful!!!

I need to take a new picture of mine and photobucket it now that I finished with the stock work and barrel shortening.

This is a great rifle for many locations but I really like it hunting my land----300 foot steep ravines, gorges, heavy cover, thickets, thorns, brush----nothing like a shorter rifle with some knock down power.

I have an H&R SB2 that came with a 2nd barrel, chambered in 30-'06.

Also have a Smith-Corona 03A3.

My "frankenmauser," put together on a K98 receiver, reworked bottom metal (Turk I think), a free J.C. Higgins barrel that needed some work, and a free stock.

The $300 that I have in the scope is probably about $250 more than I have in the rest of the rifle, put together

And a push-feed model 70. I'm sure you guys know what those look like!

I have an 03A3 in the safe, but don't hunt with it. Maybe someday.

Used to have a pitted .30-06 barrel on an old Savage 110, but it has a .270 barrel now.

.30-06

I've had many over the years. The one I enjoyed most was a 1970's vintage Remington 700 Classic. I basically shot it out, living in the country and getting tons of long-range practice. It was still pretty and I should have put a new barrel on it, but a friend wanted it badly and offered a new rifle price for it so I couldn't refuse.

The two I currently have (and love) are a 1966 Remington 700 ADL and a 1959 Browning Safari Hi-Power (as seen with me in the picture).

I own one .30-'06 rifle. It's a Charles Daly mauser. I bought it solely as a donor gun for a future project. I've never shot it.

Sadly, only 6.

3 are pre-'64 mod 70's, 2 of them std weights that are safe queens and never hunted. The 3rd, a fwt that has bloodied a couple times. Then, a New Haven fwt right before they went under. It hunted this last season but not a shot fired other than at the range. An old Rem 700 (safety locks the bolt, pressed checkering) that I've shot w/open sights but never hunted. Lastly, a Browning BAR bought from a friend needing money, never fired by me.

One other was a 30-06 pre-'64, complete with rusted out barrel. This one got rebarreled to 8mm-06.

Just one. Remington's basic model 700ADL with a basic Leupold on it. It sure shoots nice, and a friend killed an elk with it!

Sporterized '03

In the past
Browning BLR
Browning A-bolt II
Browning BBR (wish I had it back)
Remington 7400 (couldnt pay me to take it back)
Ruger M77
Remington 700
M1 Garand
Sporterized Mauser
Tikka 695
2 other BARs

....I think thats all of them.

I have owned several 30-06 in the past but when I read this post I pulled up my inventory sheet and see now I only own three.... I guess I need to be on the look out for a couple more !!! I have one Browning BAR Safari with a Boss. I have One Remington 7600 and I have One Winchester Model 70. Of them all I find myself carring the Winchester Model 70 the most, it just feels and handles more natural for me.
