true. I don't believe I've ever run factory through mine. I've pretty much always reloaded for it since I got my bolt '06 before I got the garand. I've found that toning down the rounds is actually more accurate. If I recall, 46-48grains IMR 4895 and a 150 were pretty much magic out of it.

unless there was a reason to go 308, like you have a bolt rifle to match, or an AR to match, I'd keep it '06. but that's me. I'm kinda that way

They're not liberals, they're leftists. Please don't use the former for the latter. Liberals are Locke, Jefferson, Burke, Hayek. Leftists are progressives, Prussian state-socialists, fascists. Liberals stand against the state and unequivocally support liberty. Leftists support state tyranny.
