I like the 270 and the 280, and have shot out 2 barrels in each.
now I just like the 280 a little more.
I also feel it has a little less recoil...
for hunting, 6.5mm is a step down from the 270.
far better to look at the 280 rem for more versatility.

the 6.5x55 is a very tapered case and as such will gain significant capacity by improving it.
this is unlike the 308 more parallel case.
