30-06 Ammo

The 30-06 Springfield Ammo round saw heavy use through the early 1980s. The 30 in the 30-06 stands for the caliber of the round and the 06 stands for the year the round was introduced. The round has since been replaced by the 7.62 NATO and 5.56 NATO, but still remains a very popular round with many manufacturers still producing the round. Armory Shop 45 stocks a wide range of 30-06 Springfield Ammunition to satisfy the needs of plinkers, hunters, competitive shooters, and the avid ammunition aficionado.

How To Reload 30-06 Ammo

The .30-06 Springfield remains one of our most popular hunting cartridges, even 110 years after its introduction. It’s a cartridge that can effectively use the full gamut of 30-caliber bullets, and, as you’ll soon see, is rather easy to load for.

There is plenty of good .30-06 brass on the market, even when times are tough, and .30 caliber is one of our most popular. While the .30-06 has been produced in just about every action form conceivable, from single shots to autoloaders to pumps, the bolt actions are the most popular.

If you’re loading for a bolt gun or single shot, you may take full advantage of the neck sizing technique, but for the autoloaders, slides and any other action, you need to full-length resize your brass.
