    Target, hunting, or defense?
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Are you considering one of each?

    If so, the ballistics of the .308 and 30.06 are close enough that you might be duplicating the capabilities of one with the other......again, depending on your intended use for each.

    Can you give us some idea of what role you want them to fill?

    Ahhh, but you live in CA? Changes things a bit. Without a price point, I'll submit the following:
    Semis
    .308- the JLD PTR-91. American-made HK-91. As good as the shooter, out to around 600 yards.

    .223- I'm not sure how many makers have CA-compliant AR offerings. I know Bushmaster does.

    .30-06- Unless you just plain like the M1 Garand-style,or have/want to spend +/- $1500 for a .30-06 on an AR body, there's no real advantage to having one.

    Bolts

    Savage 110 in either .308 or .30-06. I like Burris scopes, and they are genuinely American made. Glass tends to be a very personal choice.

    Steyr SBS Prohunter, in Mountain configuration (20" barrel). Can be had in stainless, and uses Browning A-bolt scope mounts. 10 round detachable box magazine conversion available. Comes standard with 5 rounder. Very nice. I traded a tricked out Rem 700 PSS for mine, and haven't looked back.

    For general hunting/survival needs in your state, I would highly recommend the Steyr and a 1.5 or 2-10X scope. Lower magnification lets you use it for snap shooting, close-in, or easily reach out a good long way in the 6-10X range. Far more socially acceptable.

    Most people aren't fighting off zombie hordes, and if you want to practice quite a bit without drawing undue attention, bolt is a good choice. Again, I would suggest .308 for ballistics and avialability, but 6mm, 7mm, and .270 are all fine calibers for 180# game. IIRC, the .270 and 7mm are a bit flatter than .308, so you may want to check the price of the various calibers in the store. Even for a bolt, I like to keep 500 rounds on-hand; 200-300 minimum.

    For long range shooting I would lean more towards the bolt action. You will get slightly better ballistics than a semi-auto. The recoil with the .308 will be a little less than the 30-06 and you still get exceptional performance.

    CETME by century arms. Not too expensive, shoots great, mags are cheap, surplus ammo is everywhere. The perfect trifecta. Check them out on gubbroker
