Thread: First outing with the 30-06

    First outing with the 30-06

    Had my first outing with the 30-06 tonight and bagged a wee Roebuck still in velvet, shame as there were three bucks and two doe's and the other two bucks were clean but they meandered over a crest and were not accessible so this fellow was knocked over, wasn't as much meat damage on a roe as I expected with it - in fact the 125gr sp was less damaging than 75 BT's 243 Norma's I have used in the past.

    the shot was high and further back than I'd like but I'll put this down to the dodgy position leaning over a dyke on a hill and shooting a new rifle to me and the buck only went 30 yards then keeled over dead.

    the lung entrance and exit holes are pretty clean.

    well done ! i myself have a30 06 and have noticed minimal damage ,infact i have a few run a long distance due to what i beleive is lack of expasion on smaller quarry so much so that i tend to use it for bigger speciese now , just something to bear in mind ,i was using 150 g sierra soft nosed home loads , sounds like theres still a few to catch up with ! happy hunting arron.
