They are so fast and can be quite accurate - lots of kinetic energy. I recall decapitating a feral feline with one at about 75yds. with a well-placed shot to the neck. Wait, that mita been a .220 swift, but same difference. Analogy to a .30-06 would be like a Lamborghini Countach to a loaded dump truck, each at full speed. I guess if a rhinoceros is changing me and I can choose real quick, I'd opt for the dump truck... Other than that...
