Maybe a strange question, but which gun is the '06?
I ask because of the heavy forend on the one. Wondering if that was to help with recoil.
I have an Encore in 308 that I have been shooting factory Nosler 165gr Accubonds through it but havent chronographed them. I have factory furniture & wondered how the recoil compares. I was looking for an '06 barrel when I picked up the 308. Figured the 06 would require a brake for my tender hands.
The full fore end and bull barrel is the .260. That is a fore end made for sand bags. That guns has shot some groups under 1/4". The 3006 is pretty consistent shooting 1/2" groups. It is much easier to carry. The 3006 will get your attention but it isn't abusive. The absolute worse loads in it are comparable to a .500 Linebaugh. My general loads are like the hottest 44 mag you can imagine.
