any of those would work fine for the uses you want it for. here's a question, how many rifles do you own and in what other calibers? reason i ask, it might help to suggest a good choice depending on what you have or don't have.
personally i like all those listed and own all of them with the exception of the 243 which i need to replace again. my ultimate narrow it down to one caliber and make a choice of all listed, it would be the 30-06 for me. very versatile, very broad selection of factory ammo of all listed, and it can be used to hunt just about anything in North America with the proper ammo choice.
