The rifle was developed due to observations of actions during the Spanish American War, in which Spanish troops were armed with German Mauser Model 93 rifles, which were deemed far superior to the U.S. Krag-Jørgensen rifles, in large part due to their durable internal magazines.

The rifle was used by the U.S. military only in the opening years of the war, however, before being phased out in favor of the M1 Garand.

 Happy 100th Birthday .30/06
An oft-repeated sentiment regarding World War I infantry weapons is that the British went to war with a good battle rifle, the Lee Enfield; Germany with a good hunting rifle, the M98 Mauser; and America with a good target rifle, the 1903 Springfield.
No wonder the designers and developers of the 1903 Springfield had an eye on its accuracy and how well it would perform on the target range: They were target shooters themselves, with roots reaching back to “Berdan’s Sharpshooters” of Civil War legend.
Naturally, the accuracy of these rifles was complemented by specially loaded target-grade ammo, with commercial manufacturers—Remington and Winchester—vying with Frankfort Arsenal to produce the most accurate.30/06 ammo.
