What are you going to use it for that you can't use the 30-06?

Don't ask me why but seems the only time I really ever feel the recoil from my 30-06 is when sighting it in. When actually shooting at deer etc. I never seem to feel it.
Garands started out as .30-06 then they converted some of them by putting an insert in the chamber so that .308 Winchester (7.62 Nato/7.62X51) could be used. Later the insert was done away with and most of the .30-06 versions were rebarreled to .308 Winchester (7.62 Nato/7.62X51). M14 was always .308 Winchester (7.62 Nato/7.62X51)alftn":m0qmkmvm said:I pretty sure that the M-1 Grands (is that right ) were 30-06 to start, later chamber for nato 308 ... M14 were all 308..The bolt actions of ww1 were springfield 30-06 i think... Been awhile since I messed with Military rifles..
