My two favorites.
I was told to pick my favorite .3006 to write about, but since I have two hands, I picked my favorite two.
My first favorite is a Model 1903A3 Remington made in December of 1943. It is a straight-stock rifle with an action as slick as a closing bank vault door. I have shot this rifle a lot, to the point of fracturing the stock some years back. Not to worry it was back in action (like the next day with a new/old stock). Though considered archaic many 03A3s were used in WWII from beginning to end. It is a rock-solid gun and if I can see it (with old eyes) I can hit it and have done so.
My other first-favorite .30-06 is a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight made circa 1957. The rifle is a standard Featherweight and is topped with the Leupold Alaskan 6X, a Beaverton Boys rendition of the old Lyman Alaskan rifle scope, so it looks much the part of the era when Winchester's were known as "The Rifleman's Rifle." Hands down except for the biggest of African game. the .30-06 with a proper load will travel anywhere on the planet and hold up it's end of the deal. Here's to another 100 years of use to a cartridge that has served well without needing the word Magnum attached for success.
