I've noticed that there seems to be many on this forum that prefer the 30-06 to the .308. I actually tend to be on the other end of the spectrum. Having done some extensive reloading in both calibers and carried both calibers in the field I tend to prefer the .308. I use less powder to reload the .308 and end up with loads that are almost identical in energy. For me it ends up a cheaper alternative in the long run than the 06. What do you prefer and why?
