Without more information about what the purpose is, it's nothing more than a popularity contest. I don't think you can choose wrong with either of the calibers.

Indeed. Both are very popular and well used calibers in rifles.

For deer to black bear to maybe elk - the reason I put it here is because I seen on other sites people say the 270 is better! and I dont agree!

They are both good rounds, personaly I would give the .308 a small edge because of the vast amount of bullet weights and charges that it has. Other then that I would take either one.

I chose .308 because it is short action, ammo choice and availability. Short action for ammo consolidation if and when I get my semi-auto.

If your talking deer hunting, a 270, 30/30, 308 and 30-06 are the standards!

Which you pick from that group is mostly personal preference that fits the particulars of your hunting style.

My preference is the 270.

If you are taking game like deer at a longer range,.270 has the advantage,but for up close to medium range,.308 is better,you don't want to dress a deer that's been shot with a .270 at 25 yards-trust me.
