One thing you will want to concider is barrel life . If for instance you shoot 500 rounds / year hunting varmints/target shooting ( don't forget fireforming brass). By the time you draw that deer/antelope tag in four or five years your barrel will have 2000 to 2500 rounds down the tube and most likely be toast .
If it were me I'd build a straight 260 remington and shoot something like a 120 A-Max for everything . Much better barrel life and when your tag arrives you should know that rifle and load insideout and six ways to Sunday.
Both are great rounds , There is a great selection of brass and bullets for both .
