  1. Loads for .30-06

    Handloading Procedures/Practices

  3. Lead bullet casts hard on barrels?

    Bullet Casting
    I want to start reloading this summer, and I want to load a little for accuracy, and a lot for costs. This got me thinking about bullet casting. I've cast round .50 cal balls for muzzleloaders so I have the melting pot. But I'm wondering if a .30-06 can push lead fast enough to wear the barrel...
  4. Is reloading worth it?

    Handloading Procedures/Practices
    I just bought a Winchester 70 30-06, and my sisters boyfriend keeps telling me I need to reload. Is reloading the 30-06 really worth it? I have a line in on an older lee press with 30-06 dies to come with it (rcbs dies) and a shell holder for the 30-06 (whatever size that is) for $50 ish. It...

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges

    Hi, New here. New shooter. Bought a new Tikka T3. Am I in the right topic? Cleaning and care part of training? Question: what do I really need for a cleaning kit? Premade kit? Build my own? Full rod, compact pieced rod, does it matter? What jags? Brushes? Found a lot of stuff out...

  10. Best known scope for 200-300$ ?

    Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    Hi everyone, I've been shooting guns for about ten years now. But recently I've been trying using scopes for my Parker Hale 30-06 cal, as you might know it has a bit of a kick (recoil). The scopes I own are all cheap, so therefore probably won't stand for the recoil. So, I just want to ask you...

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    New poster here, BTW. I ran across an older model Mossberg Model 1500. On the barrel, its stamped "made by Howa." This rifle is chambered in 30-06. I can get a heck of a deal on the gun, but I was wondering if anyone had any experiences with this model from Mossberg. I'm not expecting much...

I want something a little bigger than my 270 but no bigger than a 338 of some kind. I want something that is not a...
