Don't use 270 brass as it's too long. Use native '06 or 25-06 brass. My next purchase of brass will be 25s to use in my 6.5-06 as I've got a 280 and an '06. When I had it built in the late 80s, 4831 gave the best performance for 120s, 129s, and 140s. My barrel was throated for 140SGK, so I could load heavier. I haven't loaded any since I got a 260, but I started with 55gr of H4831 in 120s and 129s with CCI200. My barrel twist is 1-9, so it really liked 120s and 129s better than 140s.
