I think of rifle cartridges in terms of range, imo anything under 300 yards does not need the long action 06 case. 7-08, .260, .308 can do it all with less recoil and less powder within usual hunting ranges. Next step up would be in my opinion, long range hunting, beyond 300 yards and that is a different set of considerations. If I were to get into long range hunting I would step up to a magnum cartridge.
