Hi biff they have vastly different ballistics but some similarities:
Both are bottleneck cartridges
They are both 308 diameter bullets
They both fire bullet weights ranging from 110gr-170gr (30-06 up to 220gr)

That's about where the similarities end

The velocities are drastically different
160 gr 30-30 runs about 1600fps
165gr 3006 runs about 2700fps

30-30 usually is a lever action cartridge so bullets used are usually fp or rn
3006 is usually a bolt, spire points, hollow points etc

Is there something specific you are looking for? 308 is much closer ballistically to 3006. 35 rem much closer ballistically to 30-30
