264 Win Mag or 6.5 Wsm

I've got this feeling I want to build another project rifle soonish
I'm trying to decide on the calibre & at this stage it has come down to a choice between these two.
I have a spare new 700 magnum LA & Hunters Edge stock & a heap of new 7mmWsm brass, I can use if required.
So what I'm looking for is pros & cons from people with experience with either of these rounds.
It is difficult to decide by looking at info from the net & the 264 data will most probably be a bit weak, alot like 6.5x55
It will have a Gunworks Canterbury fluted & fitted 26-28" Trueflite Barrel & brake or suppressor.
Its use will be LR target & general hunting duties, except bush
I'm not too worried about barrel burning tendancies as I believe a lot of the talk is just that, talk & barrels are cheap anyway
