optimum barrel lengths 257roberts/260rem/264win

So, I'm gonna bite the bullet, swallow my apprehensions, and order an ER Shaw MK VII. I'm a lefty, so it exponentially complicates finding a factory rifle I want. Got most of it figured out already, but barrel lengths are tripping me up. All these will be hunting rifles in a sporter contour. I'm pretty sure I want a 26" in the 264win, but I'm completely lost on the others. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I'm not a hand loader, factory ammo only. Hence the reason I'm not getting crazy exotic with the chamberings.

My Roberts and my son's .250 Savage both have 22" barrels. That is a handy length for getting in and out of fixed blinds, and the window of the "truck blind" also when cruising for varmits :D

I don't think you can go wrong with any of the common lengths for the smaller cases.
