On the .30-06
"...for all kinds of jobs in the open
and in timber, on big animals and small, at long range and short, there isn't anything more versatile..."
"The .30/06 has been tested
for nearly a hundred years and, securely enthroned as the queen of American cartridges, she seems to be getting better every year." Jim Carmichel, Outdoor Life
"I've used the '06 off and on for more than 30 years. I suppose I've taken at least 500 head of game with it on four continents. It really is one of my favorites." Col. Craig Boddington
"Then we come to the .30-06 Springfield, my pick as the greatest rifle cartridge of the 20th century ... a benchmark by which big-game cartridge performance is compared."
Layne Simpson, Field Editor, Shooting Times
"There's nothing you're likely to hunt that's too big for a one-shot kill with a.30-06. From winning wars to winning the hearts of hunters, the everlasting .30-06 remains our most popular round." Wayne van Zwoll, Sports Afield
"The .30-06 Springfield is the most versatile cartridge ever developed."
Sam Fadala, Guns magazine
"I have long taught that if you can't do it with a 30-06, you probably can't do it."
Col. Jeff Cooper
