30-06 is about 60% of what .50 bmg is.
No, no it isn't. I'd say your buddy is closer to the truth than you are.
If you're going to quote someone, at least quote them accurately. Here's what the OP actually said:

According to Wikipedia .50 bmg is essentially a scaled up 30-06 and its dimmensions are about 60% larger.
A 30-06 case is about 2.5 inches long.
60% larger means 1.6 times as large.
A 50 BMG case is 3.91 inches long, close enough to 4" to be "about 60% larger".
