I know just about nothing on balistics. I've done a little reading on them.
but what I CAN tell you, is that right now, I can go buy 30-06 ammo at wal-mart. it's sitting on the shelf, right along with the .270 stuff. those 2 calibers and shotgun ammo is all they have.
I've not seen .308 at all since the panic started. I had to order some off the internet and it took 4 weeks to be delivered despite being told that it was in stock.
so if I had it to do over again...I'd look at the 30-06 simply based on ammo availablilty at the current moment.
