You're skipping the .260 Rem which lies between the Creedmore and the others.
Of all of them it is the cheapest to shoot, and you can still push 140's out to around 2850fps with a 24-26" barrel.
.260's have been proving to be extremely competitive the last few years in various long range and sniper competitions as well.
