The two calibers are very comparable. The 7mm might deliver a little better performance on game, but with any kind of decent shot it wouldn't be noticable. Ammunition for .308 will be more widely avaialble, and probably cheaper.

.308 I really like .30 caliber guns they just seem to kill clean and quick

I would go with the .308. There are simply a lot more options as far as ammunition to choose from.

By far love the 7mm-08! I have a Remington Mountain Rifle in 7mm-08 and it is my favorite caliber by far!! Its a killer!

I'd say .308 simply for the ammo options. There is also just something that draws me to .30 bullets. I have experience with .308's myself and I liked them, not as much as the '06 though!! I haven't tried a 7mm/08 but I have heard nothing but good things about them.
