If you load your 30-06 down to 30-30 ballsitics, you'll have trouble with bullets mushrooming properly. Typical 150-180 grain bullet jackets are too thick. But if you load a "varmint" bullet such as 125 grain Sierra, you'll be happy with this performance plus sigficantly lowered recoil.
Fire up the grill! Deer hunting IS NOT catch and release.
