    I used a 338win mag with 225gr A-Frames and they worked great on a couple of BlueWB and a BlackWB.
    In a 30-06 (which I did take) I would use 180gr A-Frames or 150-180gr Barnes TTSX bullets.
    I would(and do) use the TTSX over the TSX in all my rifles of 25cal/6.5mm cal/7mm cal/30cal and 338cal.
    My 2 Cents

    I've shot 2. One with the PH's 270 and 150gr PMP (soft as shit) and it went down in about 100yds. The other (a monster) with my 7mm mag and 160gs A-Frame it went less than 50yds and piled up. Your 3006 with a quality 180gr like accubond, Trophy bonded etc or barnes 165 or 168 will do the job. Shot placement can't be emphasized enough. A crap shot with a 375 will fail where a great shot with a 243 will succeed

    The same can be said for archery, shot five and four ran between 40 to 80 yards but the one I shot to far back was a long track!
