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.

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.
