I remember growing up years ago and anytime you got around the “old folks” the 30.06 was highly regarded as “the deer rifle” of choice. Killed my first buck with a borrowed 742 woodsmaster 30.06. Soon after I received a model 700 bolt action 30.06. Now many years later, I’ve taken deer with blackpowder and archery equipment, but every deer I’ve taken with a modern rifle has been with a 30.06 although I own and shoot other calibers, I always grab the 30.06 when modern gun season rolls around.
