Thread: Which .30 cal do you recommend and why?

  1. #1

    Which .30 cal do you recommend and why?

    Good afternoon all, what .30 calibre are you all using? I fancy getting a .30 cal I will be using it from Fox up to driven boar and maybe in a couple of years plains game, I have a slot for a .30 06 at no but don't no if to go win mag or maybe drop down to 7rem mag, what do all think?

    Unless things have changed an awful lot since I was doing this you FAC says 30-06 so a 30-06 is what you can get. You could not buy either a .308 or a 7mm with that open slot.

    ditto what Conure says and in addition...
    obviously I'm bias to 30-06 as thats what I have, but there's very good reasons why its one of the most popular calibre's around the world. Ammunition is easily available in most parts of the world, with a wide choice of bullet weights for various game and theres a huge choice of rifles in the calibre, to name just a few.
    Nothing wrong with 7mm or 308 of course, but I'd stick with whats on your ticket, you won't go wrong.

    Thanks for your replies but I thought i could do a 141 to change the cal.

    IMO 30-06 is a fine caliber for all that your thinking of doing.

    I would go for a 6.9x64, awesome round...

    Stick with 30-06. If you want a 7mm rem mag then get a 300win mag.

    30-06 yes I agree, but I prefer my 7mm mag to my 300 win mag

    30-06 a very polar calibre in Africa for Plains Game, your PH will not turn his nose up at all.

    More than man enough for Boar or any Deer that you bump into over here. Ever man enough for Elk should you fancy it.

    Charlie isn't going to like a 125 grain Vmax very much either.

    It's a much softer shooting round than either a 7mm Rem Mag or a 300 Win Mag. As a result of the reduced recoil it is likely to be both nicer to shoot and more accurate.

    What's not to like. Stick with what's on your ticket.
    So much to learn and so little time left
