Well it looks like I won't' be deer hunting with my 30-06 Ruger this season...Almost 10 yrs' ago I "loaned " my 30-06 Mark II to my son...It seems that every time I tried to reclaim it he needed it for "another hunt". I recently finally got it back in late May of this yr. No ammo though...Well I have been on the ammo search since May and have come up 0...Can't even find brass or boolits! I got plenty of primers though LOL. I have other rifles but after the long absence of the 30-06 I kinda wanted to get aquainted with it again. I guess I have to carry my 45-70 Browning 1885.
