I am looking at getting a new hunting rifle. My 2 current rifles are a Winchester model 70 in 7mag and a Winchester 30-30. So now I am looking at getting a new caliber and I was looking at .300, 30-06 or .308. What are y'alls thoughts?

Is it for a specific or just general overall purpose? The .270 is hard to beat for an overall caliber. Ammo is easy to find in a variety of loads, even managed recoil if you have kids.

If you want a rifle that has different capabilities than your current rifles ... 223 (fun little tack driver than can be used for deer management or predator control) or 300 win mag (efficient --if slightly big -- deer rifle, with a little extra thump in reserve if you step up to elk/moose/grizzly or Africa plains game).
