Another thing about the two that is a consideration, is the 270 has a little more sectional density to it, which helps with penetration. With a properly constructed bullet, this gives a little flatter trajectory with the ability to take game like elk.

But, like others have stated, the 06 gets the nod if tough thick animals with alot of heavy bone and muscle are going to be hunted because of the heavier bullet.
They are both excellent choices, and probably in reality, the only calibers needed for most hunting in the lower 48.
