depends on what your gonna do with it? If your gonna hunt larger game then definetly the 30-06. But between a 22-250 and 223 the 223 is alot cheaper to shoot but the 22-250 out preforms the 223. just depends on what you intend to do with it

If you think you might go hunting large game with long shots, go with the 7mm mag or a 300 win mag. A 7mm-08 is a mix between the .270 and .308 and would probably do the trick if sighted in right

I know. I found a Winchester model70 30-06 in great condition with a leupold scope on it for $600 is that a good deal. That Win 30-06 is what made me even think of a 30-06 because the rifle seemed like a good deal so I was thinking I could buy that Win now then get one of the others later as of right now I dont have a rifle and need one for coyotes.
