    Ok guys, I am fixing to buy a rifle and I need you guys to decide the caliber for me between a .308 and a 30-06. I hunt in the southeast in hill country and the longest shot I will ever take is about 300 yards -The Kid

    30-06 and .308 are very similar in the historical purpose of the weapon. Both will make beautiful groups at 300 yards and above. I prefer the 30-06 myself. The .308 replaced the 30-06 because the .308 is a more efficient round. I bought the Remington 700 XCR 30.06 a year ago and it is one of the best purchases I've made to date.
