Default .270 / .308 Optics Question

I have a .270 and a .308, both with quality 4-12X40 scopes on them. I have the opportunity to pick up a very good quality 6-24X40 scope at a good price. My question is what rifle would be best suited for this scope? Rifles are both used for mainly target shooting but I also use them for Deer and Wild Boar.

neither. That is a scope for varmit/target shooting not deer/pig hunting.

As stated above^^ the 4x12 are more than enough power for those calibers.
