Liberty Ammunition’s newest hunting round from its Animal Instinct line, the 30-06 Springfield, is now shipping. The 30-06 Springfield exits a rifle at velocities greater than 3,500 FPS with a muzzle energy greater than 2,700 ft./lbs.

“We are pleased to release the 30-06 Springfield round right in time for hunting season. We think hunters of all levels will enjoy the reduced recoil and match grade accuracy and most of all the increased lethality of our Animal Instinct line. ” said Matt Phillips, VP of sales and marketing for Liberty Ammunition.

Although the 30-06 Springfield is known for being a classic hunting round, there’s nothing old-school about Liberty’s new cartridge. This state-of-the-art round boasts a lead-free copper-monolithic fragmenting hollowpoint design that gives hunters an edge when they’re out in the field.
