.308. It is much better than a 30-06 at longer ranges :D
You might want to have another look at your ballistics chart. At 300 yards the '06 has the .308 whipped in velocity and energy, so does the .270. 8)

Thanks for the link. You would never catch me arguing about the accuracy of the .308, but as far as downrange velocity and energy are concerned the '06 edges it out. Dont get me wrong, I'm no '06 fan, I'd go with the .308 over it anyday. 8)
