Further perpetuating the type of performance that keeps .30-06 ammunition firmly planted as a quintessential hunting caliber in America, despite amazing cartridges being developed for specific purpose use cases. This Barnes load utilizes a TTSX (Tipped Triple-Shock) projectile to show the extreme versatility of the .30-06 Springfield round. The all copper monolithic bullet design means more weight retention and more energy on target delivered. The 50 state compliant payload and the incredibly potent 180 grain weight projectile with the high speed and high energy delivery means the upper end of the spectrum is expanded again, for the game which can be reliably taken with the round.
Similarly, the 2700 fps velocity and 2910 ft. lbs. of energy are suitable for use across the spectrum for those game stalked by serious .30-06 hunters. Why use a .338 Lapua in the field at a heavier rifle weight when you can take the same or similar game with a lightweight .30-06? Why go to the specialty rounds when you can maintain your versatility with Grandad’s old “‘ought six” bolt action. Simply put, more than a single cartridge, or a single caliber, the great game changer for the .30-06 is the amount of situations within which it can shine for hunters anywhere. This load by Barnes is a perfect example of the capability of the extreme ends of that fact.
