The 7mm-06 is a wildcat developed around 1950. As the name suggests the 7mm-06 is a 30-06 Springfield case necked down to 7mm, or .284.
By design it is very similar to the 285 OKH and the 7mm-06 Mashburn. It is in the same class as the 280 Remington, but the later case will hold approx 2 grains more of powder. 280 Remington MAX loads should be used with caution!
