Interesting bit of info- how many of you know that the “06” in .30-06 (affectionately called the thirty-aught-six) is actually the year the round was introduced? Yep! 1906. The “.30” is the caliber of the bullet. The .30-06 Springfield cartridge was introduced by Winchester for the United States Army and was later standardized. It remained in use until the early 1980’s when it got replaced by NATO rounds like the 7.62x51mm (which is also our .308 Winchester) and the 5.56x45mm.
Winchester Super-X ammunition has a reputation for being hard hitting and reliable. These rounds are loaded with Super-X Power-Points which feature an exposed soft nose jacketed projectile designed to deliver maximum energy. Strategically engineered notches ensure uniform expansion for massive energy impact. They are new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.
The Winchester brand, which was founded in 1866, is synonymous with the Wild West. The legendary brand has earned their reputation for high-quality products.
The .30-06 is ballistically one of the most versatile cartridges. It rivals many magnum cartridges; however, they do pack more of a punch on the shooter over multiple rounds with a stout recoil. It can be suitable for small or large game with the appropriate load and has remained one of the most popular rounds for hunting in North America.
