Maybe letting us know what the gun will be used for, would help us, help you.
222, but the 223 has cheap brass and killed its older brother off
As far as the 30 cals', I'd go with the 300win (long) if you don't care that it is belted, and the 300 rum if you do. Most of the 30's bigger than the '06 are damn good rounds and you are really comparing different apple varieties when you disparage one with another. Some guys have had better luck with one or another, and that's about it. The bigger you go, the more your barrel life diminishes, but you'll still get fair barrel life from the rum and the 30-378 roy. It simply doesn't matter a hell of a lot if your rifle is built well at all.
