either would be enough to harvest deer with the shot placement needed ... but
my choice is easy 308!

I have both and both are great. More ammo for the .308 but I think I would rather shoot the .280.

Definitely the 308, before i would go with the 280 i would have any number of the 270 offers especially the wsm. The 308 is a great all around Deer hunting choice!!!

308 has my money, and the 270 over the 280 because the 280 never made the splash that the 270 made and everyone knows its just a 270 wannabe...........Get the 270 and quit pretending....It has the history and the storied support of the great Jack Oconnor.....need i say more.

quit pretending and get a .30-06!

i would take a .280 if i could get it in a rifle i liked, but Ruger is the only one that still chambers it in a standard production rifle (that i know of, anyway.) I'm not a Ruger fan, though. Good luck finding a used .280 (i.e. M700, M70, Browning) for a reasonable (meaning somewhat near bluebook) price. I havent. People must like 'em too much.

I'm buying a .308 Savage after Turkey season. Great ammo selection, and an accurate round as well. The price is also right.
