just to add something, have you thought about the 6.5x284? might be something that could be of interest since you seem to want to go custom anyways

I think another important thing to consider is ammo availability. If you plan to hand load, its not that big of a deal, but if you plan to shoot factory ammo, your selections are limited on all of them, but I would say your best bet for variety would be the 6.5x55, and it probably is the most widely supported (a huge European following).

If you asked me personally, I would favor the 6.5x55, but my criterium is probably different than yours.

would it be fairly difficult to find a m70 or a m700 in one of these caliber except for the 257 mag.. i already said what route i would be going there...vanguard through the custom shop like my .22-250(better stock with a cnc macnhined aluminum bedding block, target crowned barrel)

You can get a m70 classic featherweight in 6.5x55 right now (current production)

Remington made a 700 classic in 1994 (i believe that was the year) in 6.5x55.

Remington currently makes their 673 guide gun in 6.5 Rem mag.

To get a .264 Win Mag you'll have to go "old production", no current rifles are loaded for it.
