        You'd be alright assuming you have plenty of ammo and clips.

        that's been a "meme" since the 1950s you fucking zoomer shithead.

        It was joke started by guys who were just joking around, but then dumbass fuckknuckles that never served but thought soldiers were cool started taking these jokes seriously. Most fuddlore is comprised of jokes that idiots took seriously and passed off as facts.

        I imagine it happened at least once IRL. But it was probably an instance of an infantryman tossing a spent clip, someone popping their head out wondering what the noise was (as opposed to intentionally trying to attack an enemy while he was reloading) and got rewarded for their curiosity with a bullet to the head.

    i think you'd be better off than if you only have an AR-15
    at least you can hunt medium to large game with 30-06

      Not totally fucked.

      It is definitely a less than stellar rifle. Modularity is a bit lacking, it's very large, the caliber isn't as common as it used to be and 8rd clips are a bit of a limitation. That said it is still a semi auto rifle, which is an improvement over a bolt action and the high caliber does grant some advantages in range/penetration that could be leveraged for an advantage. While it isn't optics friendly, at least the sights it comes with are very good. It is also a proven and reliable system although the actual reliability of an individual rifle may vary due to age/wear/mismatched parts since they are quite old now.

      Being able to hunt is a bonus too. 30.06 is still a popular hunting cartridge. That said you can also hunt plenty of medium game with 5.56mm/223 and if being humane is less of a concern it'll work on larger animals in a pinch too. I'd vastly prefer an AR-15 over a Garand for the weight savings and more common caliber. Or better yet if you want to retain those full power cartridge capabilities an AR-10 would eclipse it.

      No gunz detected. You can pretty easily kill a whitetail deer with .22 LR, its just not considered humane. In a SHTF scenario, you could hunt whatever the fuck you wanted very successfully using 5.56.

        Alaskan ballistics just released a video of 300wm, launching 160 some grain steel core .30 cal @ 3300fps and a lvl 4 plate still stopped it after getting shot 4 times previously with 300WM, including a 110gr solid copper # 3900fps

      except m2 ball is ballistically 7.62x51, 30-06 m2 is underloaded and weak, might as well just shoot a x51 rifle.

        Even modern 30-06 is only ~75-125 fps faster than .308 win with the same weight bullet

    It's undeniably a step up from what I already have. SHTF I wasn't planning on needing a rifle though I thought I could get by with my charm and sleazy looks, and a prostitute gun I could hide in my bussy.

    depends do you have ammo manufacturing ability for the weapon.
    Including military attachments like the launcher.

    >No good way to add a scope so you lose a lot of night fighting capability. Screw that offset scope adapter.

    You might be able to put tritium or fiber optic sights on an M1 though. Would be better than just iron sights at night but still inadequate.

      It probably be better as the support mass anti Infantry with just the launcher not a DMR though.

      could you paint something onto the front sight post that glows at night?

        none of that shit ever works. I've tried it also. It needs to be "charged" with day light over time, it doesn't last and if your work with it is subpar you won't have useable night sights.
        There are indeed fibre optic replacement sights but the whole thing is a big cluster fuck for firing at night.

    They are finicky, and most .30 06 ammo you might find laying around will kaboom it.

    honestly the only thing that would hold you back is ammo acquisition if you aren’t prepared. It’s a semi automatic, durable rifle with a powerful ass cartridge that could end most fights quickly. Stripper clips are lighter than mags and are pretty damn quick when you’re trained with them.

    Not a bad gun for SHTF at all really.
