.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?

I have to through in with the guys who say there's not much difference between the .308 and the .30-06 unless you use heavy bullets, except for one thing , what action do you like.

If you partial to levers and semi autos you have many more choices in .308. There are some very good semiautos and lver actions in .30-06, but the choice'e are limited to a few.
Of course, many single shot and boly actions are chambered for either, although as stated by a previous shooter the 06 needs the longer bolt action.
