Well said. I respect your choice of rifle and chambering.I only have one hunting rifle, and yes, it's a 30-06, see post #28, but I'm also annoyed by these same things as @Darkcloud. There's room for everyone at the table. Don't tear down other gun models, cartridges, whatever to justify your choices. Don't tell me I picked wrong. We pick the things we pick for all sorts of reasons. My personal favorite reason is "it just makes me smile." Just my opinion. As the saying goes, your mileage my vary.
I honestly have no dislike for the 30-06. It is a versatile and capable round. I often make a choice just because it is different. Not to hijack the thread, but I'm really wanting my next hunting bolt-gun to be in 6.8 SPC, mostly because it would make me smile.
