    Whats the maximum range of a typical 30-06 round. Not maximum effective range, but what is the furthest distance you could get a round to travel, like if fired from a barrel at a 45 degree angle? Don't care about accuracy or precision, just how far the round would actually travel.

    The Army once stated that the 172-grain load could travel some 5,300 yards, or three miles.
