Powerful at all ranges. What it lacks in penetration it makes up for in wounding power, making even those not-quite-perfect shots fatal in most situations.
The 30-06 has a fast reload (lock time) so is an excellent choice for close in shooting where a fast, second shot (or even a third) is required. Long-range shooting with the 30-06 is possible but you need to be sure of that shot: you may end up missing your target completely and scaring it (and everything else in the vicinity - the 30-06 is LOUD!) away for good or you may end up inflicting a non-critical wound and then you're possibly looking at a long track to find the animal to finish off the job.
This rifle is based off of the Winchester Model 1873.
