I've talked to two guys recently who have told me they believe as far as bolt guns go the .270 is more common in the PA woods than the .30-06. I was at two gun shops on Saturday and I noticed more .270's on the racks there as well. Is it possible the .270 is the best seller here in PA at least in bolt guns? Also with ammo cost and availability being exactly the same between the .30-06 and the .270 is there any reason to choose the .30-06 anymore? No guide I've seen wants to see either one in Grizzly camp and I recently spoke with a BC moose guide who said that he's been a part of around 125 Moose kills and said he hasn't noticed a difference in killing potential in cartridges from .270 to .338 Win mag. He said the only cartridges he's seen a real difference in are from 35 Whelen and up. So the question is, does the .30-06 hold much of an advantage over the .270 anymore? In sales and practicality?
