30 06 hands down. heavy bullets for bear are crucial.

BTKR has killed all his bears with a .270, even the sleeping one... :chuckle:.
A .270 has plenty of kill power and of course shot placement is important with any caliber.
Some people spend their entire life wondering if they made a difference. Marines don't have that problem.

They're practically the same and there really is no right answer to your question. I like them both and I have one of each. I don't think the heavier bullets argument holds much water anymore, now that we have so many premium bullets available, such as the Barnes. I don't know what to tell you- just flip a coin I guess.

.30-06.  only because there is a larger variety of factory loads and bullet weights.  Anything from 55 grain accelerators to 220 grain is available in .30-06.  BUT you won't go wrong with either caliber.

For me there is truly no debate, 30-06 hands down.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
If I ageed with you, then we'd both be wrong.

.30-06 for me because I don't have a .270. I want one!  :'(

I've got a 270 win. and love it. Shot my brothers 30-06 and for some reason I just like the feel of the 270 better. It's a great all around gun for many types of game

Which one is all-time most popular with hunters around the world?

30-06.

That said, the 270win is a great cartridge and capable of near what the 30-06 can do.

3006 for the big game. wider range of bullets.  then i would buy a 243 barrel for coyotes and letting the kids when the primary big game season is over.   

thats the beauty of the stevens. you can order up barrels for pretty cheap for them in different calibers and change them yourself.  google shilen barrels and check out savageshooters.com  we have to stevens in the family. they shoot pretty good. 7mm08 and a 308.

a 270 can do everything you want to do, its all about where you put the bullet from .223 to 375HH.

It sounds like it's time to get a new gun.

30/06.  Wider range of bullets.  Perfect all-purpose imo.  And for bear, a .270 will deffinatly do the job, I have seen plenty killed with it, but a .30?06 puts them down faster, and less chance of loosing one.
I would rather be a conservative nut job, than a liberal with no nuts, and no job!

No way to pick a winner in my opinion. Both proven, available, verstile, you name it.
