The first deer rifle I purchased was a 30-06 back in 1974, after several years I migrated to a 270 win then got into hunting with older rifles and off grid calibers. Today, I would probably not chose a 30-06 as I think there are better choises out there if one is looking at a one time purchase. I'm not bashing the old 30-06 as it is an all time classic!
