.308 or 30-06?

4497 Views 12 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  gene
After recently getting advice that my .243 is too small for wild pigs, I am wanting to upgrade to .30 caliber. Does anyone have any advice on what round is better, .308 or 30-06?
Do they pretty much have the same effectiveness?

As has been stated earlier, the .308 comes in a shorter, handier package, with somewhat less recoil than an '06, but is limited if you want to go with 200-220 gr bullets. Unless you're wanting to go to those weights, I can't see any advantage to the .30-06, at least in real terms.
