The 30 06 was shortened to the 308 by the military to make a more compact and lighter rifle and cartridge. Like the 223 it became a sporting round due to it's avialability. As said by previous posts, the 06 can do anything the 308 can do and more. The 06 isn't going away anytime soon so I'd opt for it, but I wouldn't be dissatified with the 308 if I happened up on one.
