3006- re chamber ?????Your vote??

I have stainless 700 CDL, Fluted 3006 action, Brand new in box.
I just cant get excited or warm up to a 3006, I already admit it is the one round you can hunt anything with and it will out last all calibers..............now here is the question.............

What would you build, I was thinking 6.5-284 but I have a 6.5 creedmore although the 6.5 X 284 will handle 140 gr better. I thought about a 280 AI or maybe even 2506 but I want your vote. I want something I dont have, I dont handload yet so keep it something that either Barnes, Nosler, Federal loads for..........

Calibers I already own are:

300wsm X6 (McWhorter, MG Arms, New Mod 70 X 2, Rem X 2)
270 Win X 2 (Cooper westerner, New Mod 70)
6.5 Creedmore X 1 (Cooper Exclibur)
243 Win X 1 (Marlin X7)
7mm-08 X1 (browning X-bolt)
300 mag blaser (Blaser R8)
257 Weatherby (Mark V Deluxe, Rem 700 Custom)
257 Roberts (browning BLR)

Future hunts booked mule deer, antelope, mtn goat, bear, Elk. SO it can be for any type of game, so as you see I really have things covered so lets play??????

Tell me what caliber, why, and what it is best for:-)

    6.5x55 Swede, It's been around for over 100 years, and in a long action with modern pressures is still tough to beat. The other
    6.5's have to play catch up in ballistics or barrel life and case life.

    Looks to me like the only "normal" caliber that you don't already have is something in the .338 range. Any .338's out there that are factory chamberings that will also fit the action length?

    Nosler, Double Tap, Barnes, Federal all load for just about any caliber other than extreme wildcats.

    the 6.5 X 55 does intrigue me, in a long action 700 would factory ammo be long enough to be accurate or would I need to seat the bullet out?? Just not sure if 6.5 X ff are the 06 length.
