Can't go wrong with either, though.
In the end it all comes down to, knowing your rifle and it's capabilities, your capabilities, shot placement, and a deep love for hunting.
Again, just my humble opinion
I would agree w/ Gordo on this one.

Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.

The magnums are great for larger game BUT are overkill on whitetail IMO.
Most versatile, but the most popular IMO is .308, I'd go with a soft nosed 762x54 which is equal to .308, just a different rifle

30-06 or .308 winchester. both have almost identical ballastics with a humongous selection of bullets for loading your own or off the shelf loaded ammo. both are super easy reloader friendly rounds.

my personal choice is .308 because there are so many different platforms for the round. 30-06 your pretty much stuck with a bolt gun of some sort.

between the two options are pretty much limiitless.
