recoil ?
 
The recoil question can only be evaluated with more info ....such as what type of gun...some single shot pistols are availiable in various ''rifle'' calibers,as with weapon weight ,action type , bullet weights etc but as a base line most popular vs most popular .270 in 130 grn will kick less than .30-06 150 grn in same weight rifle .....most typical being a bolt action .The .270 is a 30-06 family member necked down to .27 caliber ....as is the .280 . Auto loaders kick less ...as do heavier rifles . Stock construction is a factor also, straight grained hardwood (maple) with a straighter grip transfer recoil worse than a deep grip monte carlo syle walnut .I like synthentics because of durability ....As a side note Im not that recoil sensitive,but the king of kicking that Ive shot was a older remington 788 bolt action maple stock .30-06 with 180 grain ....I remember it well .:D

In the same model gun with the same weight bullet-lets say 150 gr,it's gonna be about the same,but definitly a 130 grain .270 round will be a little lighter kickin than a 180gr 30-06.

Depends on the bullet & charge, but really, what`s the difference same case just different caliber bullet !

By the recoil table looks damn near the same to me.

I'll bet they didn't test the original Ruger Stainless rifles. That's the darnedest-kicking .270 I've ever "not owned anymore". My 7 mags. were easier to shoot than that witch.

gun type, weight, stock material will all make a difference in felt recoil. i have had 270's that felt like the kick harder than the 30-06's i owned. i have a remington M700 in 7mm rem. mag. that kicks the living crap out of my shoulder with factory ammo, but i can shoot it all day long with my reloads and the same bullet weights. powder can make a big difference in the felt recoil too.

All else being equal, the 270 will kick slightly less, shoot a little flatter and not hit quite as hard.

Despite all the perfectly good ink and electrons wasted debating the two cartridges, they are the same case with slightly different bullet diameters. They are therefore quite similar in performance.

yes the ballistics are close, but the 30-06 does have a slight edge in velocity and energy. but the 30-06 really comes ahead because it is the parent cartridge of the 270 and there is twice the load data and components for reloading the 30-06. don't get me wrong, because as of this time i don't have a 270, but plan on adding another to the collection soon. i have owned several 270's in the past along with many 30-06's, which one is best? really cant say, if i walked in blindfolded and had to pick between one or the other to hunt with, i would feel confident with either one, because both are excellent cartridges.
