What exactly are you wanting to do with a rifle?
This is the 3rd or 4th comparison you have asked about,and there really is zero things to compare with these two calibers,it's like comparing a 22 rimfire to a 223,they really have nothing in common with each other.
Personally,I love to shoot my 25/06,but wouldn't have a 25WSSM. It doesn't do anything better than the 25/06,and cost 2-3 times as much for ammo/brass.
The 6.5x284 is just a little faster than any of the more common 6.5 calibers,and it cost more to shoot,and barrel life is also shorter.
