I agree with most people on this post that out of the choices you give .25-06 is the best with .243 second. If you want harder hitting calibers then I also agree with the .270 Win as a good choice but if you hand load I'd probably pick the .280 Rem. The .280 has better choices of bullets for the hand loader than the .270. Both the .280 and .270 will retain more energy and veloicty down range both staying over 1000 ft lbs past 500 yards as well as over 2000 fps. Plus if you ever get an AZ Elk hunt you will definatly have enough gun with the .270 or .280.
