    308 or 30 06

    Looking to move on from my sauer 202 in 243 cal, i have narrowed my search to a 308 or 30 06.
    Have plenty of roe stalking with a small area with reds. Can't decide with one?

    I'd go 308 but there is so little in it buy the rifle you prefer
    Right where's those stones , I'll start !

    My thoughts where similar between a .270 or a .308 and on what ammo is more easily got and that ended the question nearly right away as most RFDs I looked at had more of a variety of bullet heads for the .308 than .270 and I dare say that you would need to look at all the positives and negatives of each caliber and decide what outweighs the other in both.

    A 308 will work well enough. Maybe a bit more factory ammo available for it. You won't go wrong with either choice.

    In my opinion, not worth much, 30.06 or 7 x 64. Both classic cartridges that will do all you want and feed more smoothly than a 308.

    But in most cases C is always the right answer

    I went 3006, and never felt restricted, or compromised by it. Does everything i want and more, so if and when i want more it will do it. To be honest i am sure a 308 would be the same, as said before, get the rifle you want, unless you need something specific then it will be fine.

    Go with ammo price/availability... Or, just get one of each.... Can never have too many... Right????
