I also appreciate the kind remarks. I'm not in disagreement with the 30-06 points, heck I think I have 3 of them. I just wanted to expand your caliber choise possibilities. No doubt some of the newer bullet choises will surpass the old -06 in trajectory and speed, but in the real world won't kill them any better at your hunting ranges and for the vast majority of hunters. I currently shoot an old 300 sav model 99 and really enjoy shooting it. Many rifle calibers would work for you. Let us know what your new present is. I know you can still buy quality 270 and 30-06 for 20.00/box. Happy shopping.
