    Show me and i swear my next rifle will be a 30 06
    A utube vidieo at a range (bench) where you shoot a 100grain then 200grain ect.(same rifle one after another ((slow paced 5 shots of each))
    Dont care about drop just groups. It's easy to fake but then i would'nt be suprised. Put your bullets where your mouths are.:neener:All in good learning

    D*N*R,

    Please sir, spare we humble 30-06 users from the relentless onslaught of your keen wit, cutting logic and impeccable grammar.

    I think that the OP is issuing a challenge to the 30'06 lovers. He may want someone on this site to shoot 30'06 bullets of varied weight and then post the results on You-Tube. This may or may not be an attempt to troll or stir the pot. I work with people who have problems communicating. This is just my take on the post.

    I think he wants us to gutshoot a lorax. I could be wrong though.

    He's been posting pretty heavily in the one-round-for-everything thread (it's called something like "turn in all rifles and choose one round" or something). I'm going to guess that what he's trying to say is that while the .30-06 can have bullet weights from 100gr to 200+gr (and thus is said to be the best all-around round), he doesn't think that any one rifle will shoot that spectrum of bullets (with varied grain weight) accurately across the board. So he wants someone to prove to him that you can accurately shoot different weight .30-06 rounds through one gun accurately.

    That's my best guess for what he's asking anyways.

    Edit: Sandman must have posted while I'm typing...it looks like we came to the same conclusion about his question, though Sandman summarized it more succinctly.

    My wife has a relative who used to wear tinfoil under his hat to protect himself from harmful radiation from space aliens. I wondered where he went!

    I get what DNR is saying and I kind of like the idea. If I ever get a chance I'll try it out. I know I've got some 150's, 165's, and 180's (my Tikka shoots lights-out with all three). I'll see if I can find some 200 grainers and give it a shot.

    I think he's crazzyness for the 30 06.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    My 06 groups 150's and 180's equally well. Ijust loaded up some reduced 110 grain bullets but havent had a chance to run them yet. If I can get someone to make a video I'll be happy to comply with your request.

    Never had any need to go heavier than 180 grains. But my Ol' Pet was sub-MOA with 110s, 150s, 165s and 180s.

    Way back before most of y'all were born, I messed around with a 1917 Enfield and loaded 80-grain .32-20 bullets on top of a bunch of 3031. MV around 3,900 to 4,000. I guess around 1.5 to 2.0 MOA with a Weaver K2.5 on top. Sort of a jackrabbit disassembly load.

    One-MOA with most brands of 150s. That Enfield was a good-shooting old rifle...

    Don't need to show groups to a naysayer just look for yourself at the vast amount of reloading data and range of bullet weights and powders available for the .30-06.

    These pages just barely scratch the surface, there are many reloading manuals full of expert tested data.

    DNR, are you saying "if you guys prove this or that to me, I will buy a 30-06"...?

    It sounds like you're saying you don;t care for the caliber, but if we go do your bidding, you might consider it.

    How about......I keep loading for, shooting, and liking my 30-06 and you buy or shoot or sell or barter some caliber (any caliber) you like? And nobody has to make a video or prove anything. Deal?

    Don't you usually have to re-sight your scope if you change bullet weight? I've never shot different kinds of bullets in the same group, but perhaps it would be easiest with iron sights. Inside 250 yards, a Remington 700 ADL with iron sights should easily put any weight bullet that you desire into a decent group. All of this with almost no fiddling around, provided that you do your part.

    I have to admit, this question is pretty odd. Also, did anyone catch that the OP didn't specify a range that the target should be set at? It could be 25 ft, 100 yards, 1000 yards. He just didn't say. I would think that at 100 yards or less, different bullet weights would affect the group size much less than at 300, for example.

    If DNR is really serious about considering an all-around -06 for different bullet weights, a used Remington 700 ADL with iron sights is a great option.

    Sorry mabe its to clear? As far as i think a SAY one in ten twist rate barrel (common) will stabilize a certain lenght OR weight bullet. If any one has one that will group 100grain and 200grain that would be an awsome gun to have (30 06) i dont hear other cal' can do that. I asked if someone can show me because thats what i always hear WHY TO GET A 30 06 ?im to good looking to be a troll? uuh

    sorry -some of you got it thanks
