Since when is the .308 inherently more accurate than 30-06? It's not from what I can tell...
I'm in agreement on the action length as well, the negligibly shorter .308 action isn't going to improve rate of fire at all.
they are both great cartridges, IMO the 06 has the advantage because it has more powder capacity and therefore has a slight velocity advantage.
The .308 is known to be inherently more accurate..... not a new thing.

And when the OP is wanting to run a can, he might not want the extra 1-200 fps of velocity... A higher velocity does not make one round better than another.
