Aaron1991, what have been smoking SON!
They shoot the exact same bullet just the 30-06 shoots it faster that means it's flatter, farther and harder hitting than the 308 Win or 7.72 NATO!
while the '06 has more punch the 308 will hold up and have a flatter trajectory then the '06 but in the choice of hunting both very reliable calibers
The simple answer is 200 fps. The .308 fires a 150 gr bullet at 2800 fps while the '06 puts it out at 3000 fps. The .308 does not handle larger bullets like a 180 gr very effectively at longer ranges as does the '06. What the .308 does do is handle many tasks extremely well and with great accuracy- all in a short little package. I use the .308 lots but I would have to say the '06 can do anything the .308 can do and then some. In terms of felt recoil I have always found the .308 loaded up to snuff to be a pretty snappy piece of recoil - I don't find it any better or worse in recoil with any well stocked gun than the '06.
the 0/6 is more powerful, and has more recoil
