The no good .30-06!

I purchased a brand new ruger m77 over the summer chambered in .30-06 and finally got around to doing some shooting. I know what you're thinking, with all the 6.5 speedracers and 300 thunder guns out there why go with the old, decrepit, inaccurate 06. Well I guess I got lucky with this one.

Yup, an awful cartridge. Can't hit the broadside of a barn with 'em, fer sher.

In all seriousness... I hunt with a wide variety of guns and a lot of calibers. But if I need to get serious about putting some meat in the freezer, I'm reaching for my no good .30-06 every time. It's a caliber that ---- near everyone owns, and for good reason.

The M77's are very nice guns in any caliber, and it looks like yours is no exception. Good luck with it in a few weeks!

My Remington 7600 18 1/2" barreled Carbine is my favorite woods rifle. It is short, fast, handy, accurate and powerful! What more could you ask for. Shoots factory 180 and 220 Cor-Lokts to the same POI at 100 yards. Shoots 165 PSP Cor-Lokts 2 inches high dead center with the same zero. Love the rifle and cartridge.

30-06 is a great round. Loaded ammo can be found. ,308 bullet a bunch to pick from.

anything from ,243 up to .357 diameter moving at right speed and right bullet are good guns. any bigger why, any smaller why

glad you got her shooting so well.

Never owned a 30-06, but my 1972 Ruger 77 270 is a good shooter with several different loads.

Own 2, a model 700 purchased the year it was introduced in early 60's, and a 760 pump.
Both very accurate.
