30-06 Springfield Ammo by Sellier & Bellot
30-06 Springfield Ammo by Sellier & Bellot: If you’re a seasoned hunter, odds are good you’ve taken down game with a .30-06. The .30-06 is a powerful rifle with fantastic hunting capabilities, and also has a tendency to eat whatever ammunition you feed it. With this sizeable round you can take down anything from whitetail deer to moose to pronghorn to bear; if it’s large game and you want to bag it, your .30-06 can take it on. It’s been around since 1906, when it was first introduced for use in the U.S. Army, and it’ll be around for years to come. If you own a .30-06 it’s probably the gun you most love to shoot both for sport and hunting; the .30-06 is capable of delivering stunning knockdown power, and it’s truly a pleasure to shoot.
At 180 grain these are still considered medium-weight rounds for the cartridge size, but they’re also fairly sizeable. A 165 grain round in .30-06 is capable of delivering a clean kill if you’re after whitetail deer; 180 grain will more than do the job. These are SP rounds and begin to expand the moment they impact your target, but they expand more slowly than HP’s and penetrate more deeply, so they deliver a deeper, more catastrophic wound channel for more substantial bleed out. Just what you want in a hunting round. Even better, these rounds can be used where HP’s are banned. Each of these rounds moves like lightning with a muzzle velocity of 2707 feet per second and impacts your target like a roaring train with muzzle energy at 2930 foot-pounds. These are fantastic hunting rounds.
