Shot the “06” today for first time

My father-in-law passed away last month of cancer he fought for alittle over a year. God rest his soul, just a great guy and outdoorsman.
Well I got his Remington 700 BDL 30-06. I took and had a Scorpion 4x12 scope put on it. Took it to the range today and WOW what a gun. I never shot an “06” before and I was impressed. I sighted about 1.5” high at 100yrds. with Federal soft nose 150 grains,I had 4 shots in a quarter sized hole. I guess that should be good enough.. love this gun, thank you father-in-law George Trick, god bless ya.

My ‘06 was my grandfather’s rifle, also shoots great like yours does. Nothing in my life has more sentimental value, I would not sell that gun for all the money in the world. I’m sorry for the loss of your FIL. I know when I’m in the woods with my 06, grandpa is there with me. I’m sure it will be the same for you.

This state won't let me use my 30-06. It's a Remington 742 semi

I carry a gun because I'm to young to die and to old to take a ass whipping.

no semi auto rifles for big game. they just passed regulations allowing us to use them for small game and varmints.


to stuffer and Johnnyb....everytime you guys hunt with those guns the original owners go with you. keep em hunting guys

Because we're not allowed to hunt big game with semi autos

Nothing better than taking game with a handed down gun or the gun of a loved one. God bless George and may you shoot strait and make him proud.
