The right gun, the right shooter, the right weather conditions and the right load can be amazing.
I remember reading (Sports Afield?? Outdoor Life??) back in the early 70's about some guys up in PA groundhog hunting. They used .30-.338's with big/long barrels, big scopes, a rest/bench in the back of their pickup truck and a high quality range finder (WW2 German Naval unit). They had witnessed groundhog kills over a mile away.
Looks like the guy with the .30-06 could do it, too.
