Not according to QuickLoad it can't, not staying within SAAMI limits, which is the only definition of "safe" that matters.
The 30-06 gets about 150fps, max, over the .308, all else being equal to SAAMI spec.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
