I think they are all three good cartridges, but I would seperate them in my opinion the 270 would be the best for long range hunting of Deer Sized Game, in open country where you would take longer range shots. The 30 06 would be good in that country too, but a better choice for larger game, due to its ability to shoot heavier bullets. The .308 is a nice compromise for carbine leingth rifles, still has plenty of range, but would fall short to the 30 06, in terms of longer ranges with heavier bullets, and I dont think it would be as effective at extended ranges on Deer Sized game as the flat shooting 270 Winchester. All three cartridges, are excelent and I figure they will still be available when many of the new Short magnums, and other rounds are obsolete. JMO
