The .30-06 has been on the market since 1906 when it was first introduced for use by the U.S. Army. Its name describes it with the “.30” standing for the caliber and the “06” standing for the year of its creation. It replaced a number of cartridges including the .30-03, 6mm Lee Navy, and .30-40 Krag, but it’s been far longer-lasting than its predecessors. In fact, the .30-06 spent half a century as the army’s go-to round for rifles and machine guns and today is a widely popular hunting round.
These particular .30-06 rounds are made by Winchester, the company whose name is synonymous with both quality and the Wild West. Winchester was founded in 1866, and from the moment of its inception it’s had quite an impact on the firearms industry. The first gun the company made to reach major popularity was a lever-action rifle that became known as The Gun That Won the West, and today they have a number of guns and endless ammunition that’s relied upon by countless shooters. To memorialize their western roots a horse and rider is emblazoned on the corner of each box of their ammunition, and evidence of their ammunition’s quality is found in each reliable shot fired.
These .30-06 rounds are 150 grain, making them fairly lightweight for the cartridge size. Being a bit lighter both enables these rounds to move down-range at higher speeds and also helps reduce felt recoil somewhat. The .30-06 is a big, bold round and is, in fact, at the upper limits of felt recoil many shooters can tolerate before beginning to flinch. Being lighter weight helps reduce those effects. These are Winchester’s Power Point rounds and expand on impact, mushrooming as they simultaneously decelerate. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 2920 feet per second and muzzle energy of 2839 foot-pounds. These are capable hunting rounds for game such as deer, and there are 20 rounds in this single box. Winchester ammunition is manufactured with pride in America. Order now to get some quality time with your favorite rifle.
