Between the two , I would recomend the 280 AI.
Nothing wrong with the 270 WM except the cost of ammo, brass and choice of bullets.
If the 280 is set up right , you can fire form the 280 ammo while hunting. (they are extremely
accurate while fireforming) and then you can up the loads to near 7mm Mag velocities.
The 280 uses a standard bolt face (Actions are easier/cheaper to find).
They are good to 1000 yards on paper and 800 yards on dear size game.
Just my opinion.
