It fell out of favor and .223 took it's place. I like and shoot 30.06 and buy from Sportsman Guide when available. Still over-priced from panic as are several more calibers...and .22lr is just ridiculous.I mean, this is a common caliber in this country and has been for a very, very long time. Shouldn't production of .30-06 have been running at a high level all the time? Why, then, is it so pricey? What am I missing?
When you miss the boat by decades you just have to move on. As much as I'd like a Garand, it'd be more useful hanging on a wall than it would ever get shot with the price of ammunition for it.
