Just bought a 30-06 today for a 2nd deer gun instead of a black powder, when we shoot the .270 into the ground, it puts a hole the size of a baby's head in the ground. Who can predict what the 30-06 will do? Koodoes to the person that gets it...and anyone have any bullet recommendations? Does that hog hammer stuff work good?

Its most likely blowing a big chunk out of the ground.. will do the same to a deer without the right bullet and not always a good thing... this test your doing also will depend on the type of bullets your using in each

umm, the same? And a .223 will only do that with some nosler bullets that my friend hand-loaded...not that I have done it with both kinds (store-bought, and by hand) before.

Given correct bullet selection, there's not a nickle's worth of difference between the 30-06 and 270 performance on game.


If you can't laugh at yourself, give me a call. I'll gladly laugh at you.

Shooting into firm ground won't tell you much. I think the OP should find a big mud hole and shoot straight down into it. Us forum guys would like to hear how that went.

Careful doing that with a 30-06, the bullet could come out the other side of the planet.

Nav you drink beer when you hunt so you obviously wouldn't know the difference between a 223/270/30-06, so irresponsible and not in control of yourself you should have your guns taken away. roflmao

I don't shoot holes in the ground, so I can't answer that part of your question. Never used hog hammer either...

30-06 is as good as and all around caliber as there is on the North American continent, for any game except the grizzly/brown bears. Basically, you can shoot 110 grain up to 220 grain bullet weights from one rifle.

Personally, I use 150 grain Nosler Partitions exclusively for deer/hogs (or anything else that jumps up in front of me.) Just saying, get some....Hope this information helps.
