I have never owned one until last night. My dad owns one and likes it, i know several who like them and then i know several who absolutely hate them.

Picked up a Browning BAR in 30-06 last night. He gave me 2 boxes of 165gr Hornady sst's. I will probably shoot 150gr out of it because that's just the most grains i've ever shot out of any of my guns.

I'm pretty partial to my Encore .270 and will probably use that most of the time still but have always wanted a BAR so found a decent deal on this one.

I have 1. I look at the 30-06 as a jack of all trades, and a master of none. Which isn't a bad thing.

I first started hunting with a Remington 760 in 30-06 when I was 12 in PA. Not an optimal first gun for a kid but it was all we had. I have been partial to this caliber ever since.

I really like 165's out of the 30-06 I shoot 165 gr. Accu Bonds and they have always worked great for me. A little more recoil than the 150's but not too bad.

I thing you will find it will like and shoot better with the 165gr. bullets, even up into the 180gr. range. Most everyone I know that owns an 06 shoots the 165's.
They do the job well on whitetails.

i have owned several over the years and the 165's have seemed to the best for all of them

It's my go to caliber rifle. I'm starting to try and work up a hand load for my Tikka in 30-06, before I even shoot a factory loaded case thru it. I like the 150 gr Core-Lokt's thru my other rifle, but I want something else for the Tikka, but will still be 150 gr pills tho.

It is the parent of the cartridge in your screen name "rem270" and many other popular cartridges, and was the granddaddy of the short action .308 Win and it's offspring. It is a great round.

I own a .270 and .30-06. I like them both. The .270 is a bolt gun, and the '.06 is a Rem 760 pump. My '.06 shoots very well with the 165s. My .270 gets fed 140gr bullets. Both kill deer very dead, and other than action type, any difference between the two on deer-sized game is splitting hairs.
