  1. Firearms General Discussion
    Hi guys I have a few questions on reloading my 30-06 ammo. Being very new to this I was wonding if anyone has experience reloading 180 grain hormandy round nose and 125 grain Speer Spitzer bullets. I'm a little iffy about the bullet depth I have these rounds at. What's do you think?

    This year I found out the rifle I planed on hunting with wasen't accurate enough for where I was planning to hunt.It's a Remmington 742 in 30-06 I still like it for a brush gun but just wouldn't attempt a shot on a whitetail over about 100 yards with it.I was too late finding out to trade up...

    Would .308, .30-06, and 8x57 fire safely in a rifle chambered in 8-06? I know there would be little to no accuracy with the .30 caliber rounds. I also know they would all chamber headspace could cause safety concerns. I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS FOR HUNTING! This is only a question concerening SHTF...

    I've found an amazing deal on a scoped combo. Only problem is one is a .30-06 and the other is a .308. Which would ya'll recommend. I know availability of the .308 would far exceed the 06, but damn I love that 30-06

    I know this has had to have been covered many times before,but when shtf,I'm thinking 12,.22,.308,and 9mm. Bird,buck and slugs are relatively "cheap",1n7/8's ounces of #7 will poke a deadly hole in anything at close range,plus make you an easier shot for a squirrel for your supper.22's are...

    Please help ... I have been looking to purchase Remington 30-06 for some time now and have been checking prices in all the local retailers for the same gun. Although the price variations did not surprise me, (the big box store was about $40 less than the nearest gun shop) what I heard in one...

    This is my converted Saiga 100 series 30/06 with ak forends and tapco t-6 stock. It also has a mojo sight installed. And for any purists out there I have not modified the rifle in anyway, and it can always go back to original configuration. Thanks Kira. P.S. sorry for the crappy pics I used a...

    Does anyone know where I can get a chamber insert / adapter to convert my 30-06 to 308? I'm not really interested in having the rifle permanently modified, but I would like to be able to slip a 308 chamber insert in. Thanks for any info, Mike

    What would you consider as the best sniper rifle. Use hunting and SHTF No large bore like 50 cal. (put your monet towards ammo) Priced right that does not break the bank US made, but if it is a good deal for the money go for it Ammo easy to buy and you can reload Max range 1000 yards...

    I am looking to get a semiautomatic Deer Hunting Rifle that can also be used as a survival weapon. My current bolt action is a Savage in 30.06 and I have a comfortable supply of 30.06 ammunition. I am not looking to debate 30.06 vs .308, just looking for semiauto options in 30.06. I already have...

    How good is the 7.62X54 round? I can pick up a rifle for around 100 dollars I just don't know if it worth it and would like to know more about the accuracy and the range before I add one (possibly two if the wife likes it) to my collection.

    I've seen alot of people mention to get a .308 as a mainstay rifle. I grew up with the 30-06 and am highly considering purchasing one tomorrow. Is there a reason to choose one over the other as a hunting rifle? Or is just a matter of preference? I'm partial to the 30-06 only because that's...

    I have a guy at work who is selling the rifle pictured below. Sorry his pics aren't that good. I will be picking it up (hopefully) this afternoon when we agree on a price. What would be a good price to start negotiating at? Also, how is the recoil as compared to a Enfield in .308? Not a big...

    Can anybody direct me to somewhere that sells specialty magazines? I have a Remington Auto74 30-06 that takes a detachable magazine. I only have one 4 rounder for it. I am looking for more and if possible, higher capacity. Any suggestions?

    Is $650 a good price for a M1? It's in a classified's type periodical that I find in local convenience stores. It says "Good Condition." Seems like a low price for a M1 Garand.
