I owned a 6.5-06, and it is a really neat cartridge, shoots flat as a laser and has good terminal ballistics with heavy bullets. 6.5-06 will give you about 200 fps over a 6.5-284 in equal length barrels. 6.5-284 is a standard cartridge, ammo is available over the counter, 6.5-06 will have to be necked from 25-06 (or 30-06 and neck turned) and hand loaded. Not a huge deal but still a consideration. Given the two choices of 6.5-06 or 270, I would go for the 6.5-06. I never was a fan of the 270, no reason, just me.
