.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?

Would take the .308. Now i do NOT belive the .308 can do everything a .30-06 can, but it's close enough with medium and light weight bullets.. If i had a burning need or desire to shoot 200 -220gr. bullets, would take the 30-06.

Could also argue long vs. short action...as you certainly wont get a short action 30-06.
