Details

The .30-06 has been around since 1906, when it was first utilized by the U.S. Army. For fifty years it remained the primary rifle and machine gun round for the army, and although it’s since been replaced by other cartridges in the military it remains a vastly popular round in the gun world. It’s a big, bold round favored by many hunters as well as sport shooters for its significant power, and for good reason. The .30-06 performs at the upper limits of what is acceptable felt recoil for the average shooter. Anything over 20 pounds of felt recoil can cause the average shooter to flinch, and the .30-06 hovers right at about 20 pounds. It’s a powerful caliber with enormous knockdown power and an equally enormous appetite.

These particular .30-06 rounds are made by Federal, a company founded back in 1922 by Charles Horn. When Horn founded the plant it had been in operation for six years and was failing; he felt he could turn it around, and he did. His began distributing ammunition for sale in local filling stations and barber shops, and in no time the company began to take off. Eventually Federal took on a government contract, building and operating what we now know as the Twin City Ordnance Plant, which resulted in their supplying ammunition to the U.S. military through multiple wars. Today Federal is among the front runners in the ammunition world.

At 165 grain these are considered fairly lightweight rounds for the .30-06. These are BTSP – Boat Tail Soft Point – rounds, so they deliver expansion immediately upon impact, but because they’re SP rounds they expand more slowly than an HP round would, resulting in a deeper, more devastating wound track. In addition, their BT helps them resist cross winds and maintain a balanced trajectory over long ranges. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 2800 feet per second and muzzle energy of 2872 foot-pounds. These rounds are ideal for hunting game such as whitetail deer. There are 20 rounds in this box of ammunition, which is made at Federal’s plant in Anoka, Minnesota. Order today and enjoy the compelling force of your .30-06.
