Does a wheat field count? 1 mile by 1 mile.

Accuracy International 308 Win.

Longest shot was 470, dropped where it stood with a 175 SMK.

Pick one, it doesn't matter. Cook a barrel on one of them practicing, and hunting, put a new barrel on it, then take any one of them to the "beanfield".

I hunted bean fields for 50 years and used a 270 for the last 40 years of that. If I was going back to that part of the country, I'd park my beloved 260 and dust off my trusty old Sako 270. It's just a bigger hammer.

If I had to add a rifle, I think I'd lean toward the 6.5-284 or the 6.5 Rem Mag. Both of them are equal to the 270, and you could give them extra points for a better BC, but inside 400 yards BC difference between .277 and .264 doesn't mean much.

Hard to beat the 270 for the bean field, though my hard headed cousin thinks his 6.5-280 (yes, you read that right) is better. I tell him it's a 6.5-06 but he says he necked down his 280 brass, so by God it's a 6.5-280.
