Welcome to the Forum. Where are you from? My 1970s 700s were the same as you have experienced. Decent deer game accuracy (under 1 MOA with reloads and sometimes even with select factor ammo) decent trigger and reliable. Bed the action, float the barrel and it even gets better.
The .30-06 is a very versatile cartridge. 110 Grainers for varmints up to 220+ for bigger game. Just need to match the projectile to the twist rate for the best accuracy.
Hope you get a lot more years out of her.
