I read somewhere (I forgot where) that most loads for the .30-06 perform best out of a 26" barrel.  Can one of our resident ballistic guru's confirm/bust this ?  ZiaRifleman, or someone?

Except for 14JUN15.

I like two formats:
2015JUN30(YYYYMMMDD) or 30JUN2015(DDMMMYYYY), doesn't matter, unambiguous.
or
20150630(YYYYMMDD), simply because it sorts alphabetically in date order.

I guess it can be....but it's still weird.

The 4th of July sounds a little better than July 4th...but that's an exception IMHO.  Most other dates sound better with the month first.

Which means my YYYYMMDD makes even more sense:
YYYYMMDDHHMMSS (for you non-Excelling peeps, that a four digit year, 2 digit month, 2 digit day, 2 digit 24hrs, 2 digit minutes, and 2 digit seconds.)

And it still sorts alphabetically by date order, and time.

The only reason to use a 2 digit year again, since before 2001, will be 2032. Now it's ambiguous, has been for almost 15 years, and will be for another 16 years.

Perhaps but the metric system still sucks.

Disclaimer:  Were I signing a contract today, I would date it "30JUNE2015, or "30JUN2015".

It matters when you have to write scripts to parse dates. 01/02/2015 could be January 2nd or February 1st.

The only reason there is ambiguity is because there's no standard.
Since you guys like the military method, maybe we should let the government dictate the acceptable date abbreviation.

By forcing a single standard, there would no longer be ambiguity.

When you put the month first, you give a better frame of reference.  Telling me it's the 24th day of a given month doesn't really help me place the date.  I have to envision 12 different 24's.  There's nothing inherently special about the numeric day itself.  But telling me it's January first, I know that it's winter, it's cold, the days are shorter, the year just started, and I can get a better frame of reference on where in the calendar year we are.  Telling me it's the 24th before telling me the month, leaves the whole year WIDE OPEN.

I feel it makes more sense to specify the month before the day for the reasons above.  The year can go in front or in the rear...in some ways it's very specific and in others it doesn't matter.  Knowing the year first will help you place the event pretty well...so 2000 tells me we've passed Y2K and the world didn't end yet (phew).  

Ultimately, the MM-DD-YYYY fits in more with the way we speak.  
People are more likely to say June 30th, 2015 than to say:

2015 day 30, June
In the year 2015 on the 30th day of June
Day 30 of June 2015
30th of June 2015

So on, and so forth....

So it makes more sense to me to put the month before the day, and finalize this with the year.

Furthermore, you guys are batshit crazy.  This was supposed to be more of a 30-06 thread than a calendar abbreviation thread.

That's handy when you're looking at an individual date.  I just ran some queries over 25,467,267 dates.  It makes far more sense to look at the data as YYYY-MM-DD and order it by that format.

You know, there are plenty of ways to write a date so that there is no ambiguity.

November 12th, 2013
12 November, 2013
2013NOV12
12NOV2013

Or you could just keep going on about 111213, or 131112, or 121113, etc...
