Yet another extremely overlooked hunting caliber is the classic .30-06, the unofficially official “all-around most versatile caliber for North American hunting.”
The .30-06 delivers a big old bullet, surprisingly light recoil, and shooters can restock just about anywhere ammo is sold.
About the only thing working against the .30-06 is that its been around a long, long while and it’s not the fastest 30 caliber round on the shelf.
Another major benefit that comes with the .30-06 is that it can be found in weights ranging from 125-grain up to 180-grain. So, no matter what you are hunting on this continent, including moose, you can carry your .30-06 confidently.
