      WAM I would like to take a moment to say thank you to your comments as they bring laughter into my day, and I can look at them and agree on all parts, the beer, the coffee, and the round. Its true my friend is a light beer drinker and loves the .270

          You really can't go wrong with either caliber, although I think the '06 is more than you need for whitetail deer and therefore favor the .270.

            30-06 punches alot more punch but more damage

              I have and shoot both and love the .270 but if you handload the 30-06 is much more versatile due to bullet selection. There are many more bullets to choose; from 110 grains to 220 grains.

                the 30-06 will put a lot more hit than the 270 but both are great rounds to hunt with, also if you dont like recoil than get the 270, it is less than the 30-06

                    I favour the .270 the .30-06 is over kill to me, .270 with a 100 grain bullet will go through the shoulder and mess up the lungs and heart but won't go through the internals. The only meat damaged is the entry hole. I'd use a 30-06 for a moose not a deer.
