Ammunition Review – .30-06 Springfield

Ammunition Review – .30-06 Springfield

CARTRIDGE OF THE WEEK
.30-06 Springfield

The 30-06 Springfield needs little introduction. Invented in 1906, this cartridge was used during both World Wars and countless sporting rifles. To date it is still one of the most popular sporting cartridges in the world.

Because of this popularity, every manufacturer within the firearms industry has manufactured components to suit this chambering. Projectiles from 125 to 220 grain are available for any number of hunting applications, plus many more target projectiles. If you own a 30-06 Sprg you can literally find a projectile to shoot anything. Varmint hunting with 125 grain Speer TNT projectiles, target shooting with 155 grain Sierra Matchking projectiles, kangaroo shooting with Speer 130 grain hollow points (bucket mouths), and even shooting big game at longer ranges with the 190 grain Nosler Accubond LR.

Primarily used for hunting, American rifle manufacturers make a lot of sporting rifles. Kimber make a model of rifle specifically to fire the 30-06 cartridge – the 84L is an incredibly light, well balanced carry rifle. Varmint rifles are available from Tikka for the long range shooters.

Norma make their ‘Everyday’ ammunition, loaded with a 178grain projectile, for shooting large game. This is an excellent cartridge for shooting large game such as camels. This is also an inexpensive way to acquire brass made by Norma, whom manufacture some of the best brass in the world. It fires the 178 grain projectile at 2700 fps and, if sighted in at 100 yards, will have 15.3”of drop at 300 yards.
