.308 or 30-06?

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?

Another point is how are you on recoil? The 308 is much less on it and like what was said, it'll do 90% what the '06 will and much of what it can't is with the heavier bullets.
