IIRC, the 6.5/.270 JDJ is a proprietary cartridge developed by J.D. Jones of SSK industries. The shoulders are moved forward significantly (shorter neck) and the shoulder angle is also far greater than that of 6.5-06. He's got quite a few wildcats.

I am no expert or own either one but if I have to choose, I'd probably go with the 6.5-06 between your two choices. Which one is better is subjective and relative to your own perspective. Only you can define what is best for you.

You would be best to build a 6.5 Sherman. Brass will still need to be fire-formed, but you will be maximizing the performance of the .270/.280 case.
