NO WAY 30-06 IS MUCH MORE VERSITILE AND EFFECTIVE

The 30-06 is a bigger caliber than the .270 win and offers many more options than the .270. with the 06 you can shoot bullets from 100 up to 250 grains, which is much more variety than .270. But, if you're just deer huntin, and the goal is DEAD, either will certainly do the trick. If you're are going to hunt bigger game like elk, go with the 30-06.

The .270 is a cartridge, not a rifle,...and the .30/06 is a better cartridge than the .270, though they are both very effective and versataille.

The .270 and the 30-06 are both excellent rifles. It ultimately is what rifle caliber fits you best. I personally prefer a .270, It has a little less recoil than a 30-06 which gives me more shooter confidence. I am a much better shot with a .270 than a 30-06. They are both so close together in performance that there is not that much discernable difference. They both kill deer or elk just fine.

there will not be much difference in a .270 rifle and a 30.06 rifle (except a little recoil) in terms of knocking down a deer. but for black bears and elk, i like others here, prefer the versatility that a .06 provides.

the .270 shoots a little flatter and is a little quicker. iv shot black bears and whiteails with it and seen them both drop in their tracks dead. the furthest bear ran 20 feet.

i would say if your thinking of buying one of them go with the '06 there are alot more options and it can shoot anything from deer up to moose or bear

30-6 rifle is the best rifle to shoot on a animal if you hit them in the right spot they are going down but 270 is also pretty good

30-06 is better because it is so versatile, 95gr to over 200gr bullets,small animals to very large.

I think the 270 is better because it drops less, a little less reciol, and power is just about even.
