    I got tired of chasing deer after the shot with the 30/30 win so I switched to the mighty 30/06 Springfield problem solved

    I thought it would have been perfect for just a few yards. But I was wrong.

    @Tom yeh the 30/30 win has killed a lot of animals I’ve personally killed several but I found the 30/06 sprg , 8mm Mauser and 303 Brit (all around the same power band) but Deer down where I shot them where as the good old 30/30 had me always tracking. Also back in the 80’s when I started hunting the bullet technology for the 30/30 was not what it is today! With many bullets exploding damaging a lot of meat.
