What Bolt Rifle caliber is better and faster? 30'06? 270? 30-30? or 308?Weegy:
Of the 4 you mention the 270 winchester is the fastest.
30-30 has the least kick (assuming it is fired in guns of the same weight)
308 comes in a short action.
30-06 has the most power.
I think 270 is the best. Honestly the 30-06, 270, and 308 are all fairly close to eachother in terms of performance.
You can think of the 308 as a compact 30-06. It delivers 98% of the 30-06's performance in a package that 75% as big. BUT there are some caveats there. Because the 30-06 is so old, it is loaded to lower pressures. A good handloader can get the 30-06 to reach 110% performance, but a handloader cannot improve the 308 much at all. Second, because the 308 case is so small, if you use heavier bullets the amount of gunpowder you can fit in is diminished, so if you are using elk bullets, you get closer to 95% of the 30-06 performance...and with game as big as elk you may need that extra 5%. Now, you just can't find factory 308 bullets heavier than 180 grain. However if you DID find 308 with 200 or 220 grain bullets you are going to be looking at just getting 90% or lower performance.
SO...between the 30-06 and the 308, the only reason to get 308 is if you want a rifle that is a tad shorter overall.
NOW...between a 30-06 and a 270...
The 270 actually uses a 30-06 case with the neck squeezed down to .277 caliber. The 270 kicks a little less, flies a little faster, flies a little FLATTER too, but has a tad less energy. However, because most 270 bullets have better sectional density even with less energy they give equal game killing performance. The only exception to this is if you get 30-06 bullets that are 200 to 220 grain. Of course the only reason you'd want 200 or 220 grain bullets is if you were hunting grizzly bear or bison.
So...if you are going to hunt grizzly bear or bison, get a 30-06 (actually, get a 338 winchester magnum) but for everything else the 270 is better.Auto Answered|Score 1Weegy:
