30-06 imformation requested


#1

My book on the 30-06 by Chris? has taken to running away from home as of late. Who’s house it is living in at present is unknown to me. I just reread a story from Jack O’Connor in which he described shooting an elephant with factory loaded 220 grain fmj’s. I am unaware of who and when such a factory load was offered. Can anyone elighten me? Does anyone have a picture of such a box he would be willing to post? Thanks again.

My copy isn’t handy to answer your question, but I will give Chris PUNNETT a “shout out” and a free plug for any books he might have left.

See the post on .30-40 Krag boxes…one of the 220 grain FMJ bullets loaded in the .30-06 cartridge is the same as the ones used in the Krag…in identical boxes as shown in the post.

Thanks DAVE as always a fountain of knowledge. I prowl the net auctions regularly for many years now and have never seen a box for sale.
