    No, it is not the very best. It is a mass-produced consumer good. The very best will be a semi-custom or custom proposition. That being said, the Winchester Model 70 is an excellent first hunting firearm, and the 30-06 is the most flexible cartridge for North America. The late, great Jack O'Conner, considered by many to be THE expert when it came to rifles, called the Model 70, "the Rifleman's Rifle" because it had the combination of accuracy, smooth action, and balance. If you cannot find one in 30-06, consider 270 Winchester.
