    If I was to buy a rifle today it would probably be in .30-'06...

    I think it should be 'did you buy one?' this thread is 8 years old!

    30.6 - best all around caliber made; IMHO

    if you want a calibre that can do everything it is definitely the way to go as you can load it up with 200's or 220's for boar or all the way down to 120gr for say old Charlie and everything in between, i personally am a fan of 165gr to get the perfect balance between bullet weight and velocity for deer through to the occasional boar and if Charlie happens to pop out well, I'm sure he's not fussy, and if he is. He hasn't complained yet
    And the really nice part is that i have a Blaser that makes it really easy to swap my scopes if i change bullet for any particular reason.

    For what purpose? Otherwise it's an open ended question.

    Fantastic calibre - a no-nonsense stop anything in its tracks calibre
    For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent
