which 6.5 scout rifle?

hello all,
if you wanted to build yourself a nice lightweight scout typed rifle for medium range hunting(100-250 yards) what caliber would you use? 6.5 grendel, 6.5 creedmore or 6.5 swede?

I ask because at the last gun show I went to I saw an amazing scout rifle built on a swedish mauser action and though the thing no longer looks like it was ever intended to be a MBR I still found myself captivated by it.

on the other hand I also love AR15s and it would not be difficult to build myself a 6.5 grendel and have another very decent rifle.

I know little about the 6.5 creedmore and just what rifles are offered in it and what price range but I figured I'd include it for the sake of science.

so looking at these choices economicly, practically and effectively what do you think would be the best option in a scout rifle typed hunting setup?
