I'd be inclined to agree, but I own more than one rifle so therefore I don't own a 30-06 :lol: I almost bought one as many of you know, but I think that having a .242, .270, and a 300 Win mag would be better if you can afford it.I say if you can only own one rifle the 30/06 is the greatest cartridge ever.Lookin for opinions and debate.
My vote is for .270. Between the 130 and 150 grain bullets, they can drop just about anything.
I am with you my first rifle was my .270 & only rifle I use consistantly every year & was my only for a long time I have no issues if it were still my only one
the way I look at it they designed the .270 correctly the first time that is why you don't have a ton of choices in bullet weight you don't need them LOL
