7mag all the way but I'd suggest there are better options for you than the browning, namely the Remington 700 and Winchester M70 on the low end and Weatherby accumark on the high end.
With Browning what you get is pretty much what you got, not a whole lot you can do with them if they don't shoot well right out of the box.
Customs of course run higher but give the classified section here at LRH a look as well as over at Sniper's hide and Sniper Central. You can find some really nice rigs that have already had all the tuning necessary done.
I'd also say give the .260 Rem a look if you really like the 6.5's along with the 6.5x284. Both are better choices than the creedmore.
