    Yes, they are different enough to buy but versatility in loadings goes to the 30-06.  Everything you can hunt with a .270 or .243 you can load a 30-06 for.

    The .30-06 Springfield and the .270 Winchester are going to be fairly close in terms of performance, with the .30-06 having an edge over the .270 in terms of overall power.

    The .243 Winchester is more in the class of cartridges such as the 6.5 X 55 mm.  Its bullet weight and diameter are much less than the .30-06 and it has considerably less kinetic energy than either the .30-06 and the .270.

    .30-06: deer, antelope, black bear, elk, bighorn sheep, moose, grizzly

    .270: deer, antelope, black bear, elk, bighorn sheep, moose

    .243: varmints, deer, antelope, black bear (where legal)

    The .243 Win is a great combination varmint deer gun.  If you need to shoot something bigger than deer without a last name of bear the .270 Win or .30-06 Sprg would be a great choice along with the .308 Win.
