      .308 was the clear winner. In the 1950s, .308 and 30-06 had similar performance, but .308 was more efficient. Next thing you know, 30-06 got mogged by .300 WinMag

      Both of them are too wide relative to the amount of power they put out. .25-'06 is best -'06, and .243 is the best -08.

        If you're into handloading then 7-08 is the supreme -08 cartridge

    .308 for win

    In South Africa, the .308 is on the higher end of plains cartridges - that being rounds for hunting past 200m. Conversely .30-06 is for highveld hunting where the bush is thick so you need something thats not going to be deflected by small twigs and shit and is more forgiving as you usually dont get much choice with shot placement.

    Honestly though, .308 is really kind of big for a plains cartridge - .243 or .264 (6.5 sneed) is better.

    .30-06 for hunting large game.
    .308 is alright for humans and slightly smaller game.
    So, both.

    They're both very well rounded cartridges. .308 has the edge in self loading rifles, while .30-06 provides increased versatility for reloaders and a little more muzzle velocity. Both of them offer long case life, mild recoil and enough energy to take any game in north america.

      Can 308 reliably take down elk and moose?

        Absolutely, happens every year. Just need to use the right bullet& make sure you know at what range your projectile will reliably expand. Hell, a bunch of elk hunters I know are switching to 6.5Creed.

        30-06 may be the greatest rifle cartridge ever designed

        With the right handloads it'll match a lot of 300WM loads

          Caliber is compensation. I wouldn't recommend 308 for elk for someone without a lot of experience. But for someone with a lot of experience ya 308 is fine.

          Same as the 'if you load 45 super it'll match 10mm' meme.
          Yeah, but the point is that you shouldn't shoot bubbas pissin' hot handloads in just any .30-06 rifle or .45 pistol. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

          Get a .300WM or 10mm and benefit from commercial full power loads. If I'm gonna be hunting Elk size game or larger I'd rather just have a rifle chambered in .300 than frick around with loading 'comparable' .30-06. I took this moose with an off-the-shelf Hornady GMX at 366 yards. Get with the times gramps.

            Only if you're moronic. .45 Super will exceed 10mm with plenty of headroom to spare.

            Getting with the times would be switching to either 300PRC or 6.5Creed. 300WM has been outdated since about the year of our Lord 2000. And before you say 6.5Creed lacks the power to kill elk and moose, I will again point to picture related

              >And before you say 6.5Creed lacks the power to kill elk and moose,
              It's not that it lacks the power, it's about the ability to ensure a humane kill even if you frick up a little bit. You can say skill issue or whatever all you want, but that solid copper projectile punched a hole all the way through that monster and dropped him right where he stood, even though I fricked up and missed the heart. Yeah, skill issue, but I didn't have a laser rangefinder and I'm not an experienced moose hunter so I underestimated the size of the animal and elevated for about 200 yards. If I'd been using something with less energy than my 300 I'm not convinced it wouldn't have run off wounded. Instead I shattered it's shoulder completely.

              Anyway, I was happy with the result and I very glad I wasn't using any less rifle. Margin for error matters. It kept me eating moose for two full years, and my dad had it mounted.

        That said, .30-40 Krag and 6.5x55 were popular for elk in the US and moose in Scandinavia for years, while .303 Brit was a popular cartridge for both in Canada. A lot of elk nowadays are taken with 6mm-7mm cartridges, though some of these are magnums. A .308 is a fine elk cartridge if you at least somewhat know what you're doing.

          I have taken impala with 300win, without any meaningful damage. Modern rifles weight almost the same between magnums and normal actions. I just don't really know why I wouldn't use win mag.

    30-06 does the job it was intended to do.
    .308 does the same job but is a failure at what it was actually supposed to do.

    .308, offers a ~20% reduction in size (both in length, and in volume) at the cost of only about a ~10% loss in power.
    .30-06 is as long as a .300winmag.

    Whole reason for the .30-06 to 7.62 NATO change was because powder advancements meant you could get the exact same power and ballistic profile out of a lighter, shorter cartridge. Granted, that only really applies to military standard ammo, you can still comfortably bubbaload a .30-06 round a fair bit hotter these days.
