Winchester M70 25-06 with burned barrel, now what...

I debating what to turn my Winchester M70 into. 338-06? 280AI?

I have a 6.5-06 so there's no need for another. Thoughts?

If it were mine, I'd go with a Bartlein 5R Rem Varmint contour 26" finished length and chamber it to .280 Ackley Improved, or .25-06 Ackley Improved.

Go for the reliable and proven 7 RM! High accuracy and performance and no difficulties with both brass and fab - ammo.
