DENIX replica cartridge of the legendary „thirty-aught-six“ Springfield.
With an overall lenght of 8cm, the .30-06 Springfield rifle cartridge is the classic example of a fullsize cartridge. Originaly designed for the Springfield M1903 infantry rifle, „thirty-aught-six“ found widespread use in many other guns, including the BAR / Browning Automatic Rifle and the rifle General Patton called „the greatest battle implement ever devised“, the M1 Garand. So .30-06 was used in both WWI and WWII.
Although NATO replaced .30-06 by .308 Winchester/7,62x51mm in the late 1950s, the caliber is far from obsolet. Up to the present day hunters appreciate the shooting characteristics and stopping power of this more then centennial cartridge.
