Actually picture #7 is neither a Whitetail or a Mule. It is a Columbia Blacktail.
My Dad has a Pre-64 Model 70 (classic not featherweight). He got it from his father and killed an elk for 31 straight years with it.
I'm the youngest of my Dad's 11 sons, but I know that gun has my name on it.
The .30-06 is a great cartridge and had stood the test of time and magnum rounds. I see in picture #7 the caption states Whitetail, but I am pretty sure that that is a Mulie.
