If anyone wants to start their child with a 30-06, I have found a load that is accurate and a pleasure to shoot. I got a new tikka t3x in 30-06 and let me tell you, a 6lb 30-06 will kick from the bench. Loaded some Hornady 150gn rn (pn# 3035), with 41gn of 4895, CCI 200 primers, @ 3.000" oal. Don't have a chronograph, but should be 2400-2500 fps. That equates to about 300 savage energy levels and the recoil is very mild. I shot up all 50 I loaded yesterday and accuracy is easily 1moa. I'm still smiling! What a diverse round the 30-06 is. Will be my go to deer round for under 200 yards. Anyone else have a pet low recoil round they would like to share?
