Thread: .30-06 Mod

    .30-06 Mod

    Ok so it looks like im getting a .30-06 for deer stalking, which will be keeping my 6.5x55 company. It will be mainly for Red deer work and will either be using a Barnes TTSX or a Sierra Gameking.

    I think the rifle will be another Tikka T3 Lite Stainless Synthetic, I have already sourced a Schmit 8x56 scope but am unsure what Moderator is best.

    I currently have a Wildcat P8 on the 6.5 which isnt a bad moderator and could get another or something else.

    What is currently in flavour without breaking the bank?

    I have a T8 on my 20" barrel 30-06 and it works well. However it is too heavy for other than high seat work. You will be burning 60 or so grains of powder, so will need something up to the job.

    65 grains of RL 22 roughly...

    Hi mate I'm just having a titanium mod made by simon lawerence , very light and up to the job , not cheap but you only get what you pay for , hopefully mine will. Switch between both my rifles , I have a reflex on my 243 and it's too heavy for woodland and hill , hope this helps

    Hi, i have a tikka t3 30-06. A pretty light rifle for this round which is great for the hill but equally it means a mod is welcome to cool the recoil (a crack) down a wee bit. I have an ase ultra sl5, very nice and compact a lighter than many options. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Enjoy!

    Funds may be a problem for that......

    I reckon on spending around a grand which will include rifle, mod, mounts and factory ammo. Already have a suitable scope. I have a .208 cleaning kit which i assume will work.

    I paid 210 i think for my Wildcat in 2011, is this price still current?

    but things have moved on in recent years weight wise
