Default .308 vs .30-06

Is there a major difference between the two? Obviously there is, but I'm talking shooting Wise? The ability to purchase? Things like that, is there a preference for one over the other??

Since you posted your question in the "CMP Games" forum I am assuming that you're question relates to those matches.

If you are asking about Garands and "as-issued" matches .30-06 is legal and .308 is not.

That's pretty much it, I got a email back after inquiring about a m1 availability at cmp north, and they said they should have the RM1308SPCLHRA’s but I really wanted a 30-06. I didn't know that one was legal or not, so that is good to know, so looks like a online order is the way to pick up the 30-06. But since I was going up on Saturday (7/19) wanted to inquire if the rm1specialhra was available in the 30-06, guess not, but I know the pickings are slim. I'll be in line when they open Saturday, to check it out in any case.
Is the reason their not match legal due to the fact that when as- issued they were not in the .308 caliber? Thanks for the info!!
