Here is a viewpoint. I think Mr. jmortimer is on the right track. As you go up the scale of vintage thirty-calibers, ability to handle heavier bullets increases. The .30-30 is a 150-grain rifle, as is the .300 Savage pretty much. The .308 is perhaps happiest at 165 grains. The .30-06 handles 180 and 200-grainers better. The .300 H&H will be best for 200- and 220-grainers. I could have said .300 Win Mag here, but it suits me to be very old fashioned. There is some overlap, of course, and the appearance of improved powder technology, as with Hornady's Superformance ammo and Hodgdon's Superformance powder, has increased the overlap.
