I've had the '06, but not a .308, from what I've heard, .308 has slightly less recoil. As robertsig said, if you're planning on buying a semiauto battle rifle (FAL, M1A, HK 91 etc) get the .308, unless you want to shoot an M1 garand that can shoot commercial rounds. If not, go either way, the 30-06 has slightly more punch, but it will be unnoticeable by the recipient, even in the military kills have been recorded with the .308 out to 1000 yards, so I'm sure there isn't too much difference either way.
