Shootist3006 is correct, except for the ammo slam. With any bullet less than 200 grains (most military is in the 150 grain range) the terminal ballistics are, for all intents and purposes, the same.

I prefer 308 because it gives me commonality of caliber across all my rifle platforms and surplus ammo is less expensive.

The M1 Garand was issued in 30/06, but can be converted to 308. Of course, you express interest from a collector's standpoint, so the 30/06 would probably be the best bet for you.

Check the CMP. They currently have a pretty good selection, including some Danish rifles. Price is right too.

Good luck.
