Neither. Alaskan Brown is going to get shot with a 340 Weatherby. (Big and fast)
Of the two you mentioned, I would take the .30-06.
Had the choice been 7 mag with a 140tsx, instead of .243, I would choose 7 mag. .243 is too small at any velocity to shoot something that will try to eat you. In the .243 Win, it is also way short on energy.
