The 270 is a great cartridge and I own a rifle chambered in. But even at 600 the better ballistics of the 6.5 will be an asset. You mentioned you'd like to go farther some day so I would definitely recommend the 6.5.
If it's just about learning the barrel, honestly it won't make a difference. They are very similiar chamberings. 270 offers better energy on impact at most ranges, 6.5 offers better ballistics. That means at some point it will ha e more energy on impact. I havent looked at a chart to see what that distance is though.
The Jeep has been a lot of fun, but time to come back to my first hobby.. shooting.
