    So I when I went shooting at my range last week, I asked what rifles they allowed, the answer was anything up to .30-06

    So what does this include? I don't know how big a .30-06 is, where does the .308 fit in regards to this? What about .223 ect?

    30-06 = 7.62x63
    most rifle calibers unless its a big game gun are smaller then that
    308 = 7.62x51
    .223 = 5.56x45
