    U.S. Enfield M1917- .30-06, 6rds fit in the magazine, but it's fed by 5rd strippers. Aperture rear sight. :cool:

    U.S. Springfield 1903 and 1903A3- .30-06, 5rd magazine, fed be 5rd strippers.
    Rear sight are a ladder or an aperture, respectively. :cool:

    Also, some countries rebarrel K98k Mausers to .30-06. Those have 5rd magazines too. :)

    I have been very pleased with my Rem. model 700. Mine is in .270 win and it is very accurate. They do however only hold 4 rounds in the magazine, but you could get 5 with one in the chamber.

    edited to say: The 700 mountian rifle DM has a detachable magazine

    The Savage 114 and Remington 700 DM have a box magazine; five round versions maybe available in the aftermarket. The Browning A-Bolt has a detachable magazine, but it's actually retained on the floorplate and doesn't drop freely.

    That's about all I can think of in the off-the-shelf category..

    I'd vote for a Remington 700 DBM.

    If you have to have the detachable box magazine.

    Otherwise, there are plenty of 700 BDL models in .30-06 out there, new and used, for the asking.

    Now there's a gun that's been around about 4 years too long. :scrutiny:

    Shotgunner;

    I believe that the Tikka has detachable 5 shot mags catalogued. Whether or not the price is reasonable is another question.

    5-shot bolt-action .30-06? Rare. Can't think of any, off-hand.

    Seriously, ain't many problems that a man can't fix.............

    I’ve got two Steyr-Mannlicher’s, one in .270, the other in 30-06, and both have the rotary 5 shot magazine.

    Tikka T3, buy the Varmint model to get the 5 round mag or just buy an additional mag. The Hunter and Lite models come with 3 round drop free mags, Varmint and Tactical come with the 5 rounders.

    Guranteed 1MOA out of the box, most of the sporter weight T3s will easily do 1/2MOA with handloads or good factory ammo.

    My T3 Lite in .308Win is a great shooter.

    5 shot 06

    Buying New?
    How about a Howa? High Quality -- Cheap -- Reliable -- Accurate -- Mag capacity is 5 + 1 -- Silent three position safety
    How about a Steyr SBS? High Quality -- Reliable -- Accurate -- Detachable Mag -- Capacity is 5+ or 10+ 1 optional -- Silent three position safety
    Buying Used?
    How about a Ruger 77 Tang Safety -- Cheap -- Sometimes Accurate -- Always Reliable -- Semi Silent two position safety

    Why does it HAVE to have 5 rounds, and why does it HAVE to have detachable magazine? Just curious, if we knew that it may be easier to advise.

    The Savage 110C has a detachable 4-round magazine...that's close, anyway.

    He didn't say it had to have a detachable mag, it's just that many guns with that capacity have detachable mags.

    In MY opinion, as asomeone with the opportunity to try lots of different rifles......

    Try a remington 710 or Savage 110, You can buy aftermarket detachable mags for the 710 under $15-20. Also, hit the hock shops. I'm partial to Mauser 98 large ring models, not to be confused with the 98k, which is a military model.

    ***?

    The WWII-era Mauser K98k (Karabiner) is a true large ring Mauser 98, and a derivative of the earlier WWI-era Gewehr98.

    Not sure I know what you're trying to say above, do you mean the various commercial variants of the 98 Mauser sans stripper clip slots and thumb relief cuts? :confused:
