The problem is he is asking for something that isnt just specific to one rifle . When I think CQB rifle I think 7.5"-12" barreled AR15 in 5.56 @ 100 Yards or less . When I think 600M hunting rifle I think 30 cal and .300 win mag , because most anything you hit with it will be DRT @ 600+ meters .
He stated real combat situation and effective on the field , I again think of a rifle that will penetrate any available body armor out there at 600 m and bam there is the .300 win mag .
Why because ammo is every where , even when ammo was scarce around here I still found lots of .300 win mag and .270 on the shelves . Its not overly priced like the 6.5 creedmoor, .50 bmg or the .338 Lapua . of the effective range calibers . Would I use it for CQB , probably not but it would be more than effective , Thats where a nice 8.5" 7.62X39 fits well.
He is asking for something that truly doesnt exist in one particular rifle. I guess thats why I have so many different rifles . I dont have one that is a all in one , gets the job done kind of rifle .

So again, the 6.5 Grendal. It can do everything the OP listed.

Sure is and its one I didnt think about , and its a great universal round but I have yet to find any around my area on the shelves without having to order it , and its not a common round like the .300 win mag or the .308 around my neck of the woods .
I would like to have a Grendal in my fleet because you can use the standard AR15 mags with it , just requires a heavier buffer, spring and bolt . a 200 yard zero give you roughly 7.5' of drop at 600 yards . Great cartridge for what it is .
and more realistic price wise on the rifle prices than the $5800 Nemo .300 win mag . but it would be nice to be able to double that distance if you needed it

Here's your 'one gun' answer:

AR15 + Remington 700 in .308/30-06/.270

That's the thing about the Grendal. It's max effective range is about 1200yds. We have got the ammo for like $24 a box. Hornady stuff.
