I’ve owned and shot rifles from 22 to 458, and have enjoyed most every one of them. But, for some unknown reason, I’ve never cared for 30-06. Fully appreciate and respect what it can do, even own 2 of them right now, but I just can’t quite put my finger on why I am not particularly fond of the ‘06. Anybody else have a caliber they just don’t like?

I know exactly what you mean. There’s nothing wrong with them, they just don’t do it for me.

I used to be highly interested in both, but that’s quickly fading, and for the same reasons as you, I suspect.

I agree that the 30-06 is a good caliber but does not excite me as well.

22LR. Qualifying for the Boy Scouts merit badge using crappy 22LR rifles that were poorly maintained and not properly zeroed has biased me against that caliber for life.

Man, they've made drastic improvements over the years. BIL had his Kidd .22 lr with a suppressor and scope installed. Talk about a good time, shooting that!

It’s hard to justify it, but it’s just there. I stopped shooting the 458 and 416 because of costs- both in terms of financial and pain. The ‘06s I have now are wonderful guns- one is a Kimber 84L with gorgeous wood, the other is a custom built on an 03-A3 by a good friend with even more gorgeous wood, but there they sit, forlorn and under appreciated.

I've never had an issue with any caliber. It's synthetic stocks that turn me off, the exception being those on ARs.
