and maybe not. Bought a box powder coated bullets, .308 115 gr. Originally, they were going in .30 Carbine Ruger Blackhawk. A stiff load of 2400 and I have a back up for hogs. After loading, I looked at some .30-06 with lighter bullets. Grandson wanted a .30-06 for Christmas. Tried to talk him into .25-06 or 7-08, but his mind was made up. He shot 1 round and hasn't touched it since. Filled a bunch of brass with 16.8gr of Trail Boss and the 115gr PC bullet. It was like shooting a .22WMRF. Will have grandson shoot some and get past the recoil memory. Then, load up some 120gr Nosler or use these lipstick bullets loaded to around 2600 fps.
