The 308 is just Uncle Sam's best attempt to put the 30-06 in a small package. That's so your basic USMC grunt (me, 40 years ago) can pack more ammo per pound of weight. They had to give up some of the performance to get the smaller package. If it comes down to hunting with the 30-06 or the 308 (aka 30-06 light), go with the 30-06. As for the 30-06 versus the 270, that's been argued about for at least half a century, with no clear winner. Personally, I'm a 270 fan. For me, the 308 comes in third place. And it's no more inherently accurate than the 300 Savage and probably less inherently accurate than the 260 Remington or the 6.5X55.
