Peterson Cartridge is now making .30-06 Sprg brass

Pittsburgh, PA (June 9, 2020) – Peterson Cartridge Co., of Pittsburgh, PA, today announced the addition of .30-06 Sprg to its growing family of rifle casing calibers.

A while back we received a “complaint” where an older gentleman contacted us and asked, “Why do you make so many weird/odd calibers no one ever heard of, instead of the “normal, common” calibers?”

Here at Peterson Cartridge, we do a good business in “competition” calibers like those used for Precision Rifle Series (PRS), Extreme Long Range (ELR), Bench Rest competitions, F-Class competitions, etc. Towards that end, we produce:

 6 x 47 Lapua                 6 XC                           6 Creedmoor 

 6mm BR Norma             6.5 x 47 Lapua            6.5 Creedmoor

 7mm BR Rem               .284 Win                     .300 Norma Mag

 33 XC                          .338 Norma Mag          .338 Lapua Mag

.375 EnABELR               .375 CHEYTAC              .408 CHEYTAC


I think by, “weird/odd calibers no one ever heard of” he was referring to ones like those.

For the hunters though, we do make:

.22 Creedmoor               .243 Win                    .25 Creedmoor          

.260 Rem                       .270 Win                    .280 Rem

.280 Ack Imp                  28 Nosler                    7mm-08

.308 Win                        7.62 x 54R                  30 Nosler     


And now we have added .30-06 Springfield.

Regardless of the final use of our casings, hunting, target, or competition, each and every Peterson casing is built to match-grade specifications. This is one of the reasons why we offer some of our calibers, like .243, .260, 6.5 Creedmoor, and .308, in small rifle primer pocket size (SRP) for shooters who use these “hunting” calibers in competition. But, for you hunters who need dependable primer ignition in low temperature conditions, we also offer these with large rifle primer pockets (LRP).

Of historical interest, the .30-06 Springfield was the nation’s first 1,000-yard competition caliber. But today it is more thought of as simply one of the most popular sporting cartridges in the world. From woodchuck, to deer, to bear, the 30-06 Sprg has you covered.

Another driver behind us coming out with the .30-06 Sprg is that we have a customer who loads .30-06 blanks – like they use at military funerals or in movies. To make casings that can be used to form “blank” rounds the necks need to be much longer than what is used for a normal round. This is why we also now offer .30-06 Sprg casings which can be used to make .30-06 blanks.

So, for any customers who wish we made more of the “Normal, Common” calibers … here you go - .30-06 Springfield, one of the most common calibers there is.
