Hunt with and reload for 30-30,308,30-06,the 30-06 is finicky as to the powder used. The 308 will shoot accuratly with any powder or bullet listed in the reloading manuals.I hunt black bear with hornady 220 grn round nose 44.9 grains of H4350 3/4 group at 80 yds.Same rifle will shoot 180 grain spire points winchesters using 41.2 IMR 4064, 2.5 inchs high 3/4 in. group at 80yds, 1.5 in. group at 165 yds same zero both rounds.The 30-06 is more powerful,the 308 more accurate.I find myself picking up the 308 when I deer or bear hunt any more.johnny-r-h said: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?
