    The 30-30 shoots a .308" diameter bullet with a weight between 100 and 220 grains depending on the load. Normal factory loads are 150 grain or 170 grain.
    the .270 Winchesterr uses a 30-06 size case necked down to the .277" diameter. The .277" diameter bullets come in a weight of 90 to 150 grains. THe key difference is the .270 Winchester has a fairly flat tragectory out to 300 yards where the 30-30 has an effective range of only 250 yards max.

      Matt is right, inside 200 yds both loads are totally effective on deer. Outside 250 yds, the .270 is far superior and the 30-30 almost useless beyond 300 yds. the .270 can reach out well past that range.
