Did you ever find yourself wanting for more reach when shooting with the 55-250?
How often did you shoot with it at its wide end?
Do you shoot sports, birds-in-flight, or other action?

Answers to those questions will guide your decision.  I considered the 70-300 II and 70-300L for tennis and travel.  I thought the 70-300 II produced excellent results (plenty sharp) and was very impressed with how quickly it focused.  Durability and dust and water resistance ultimately drove my choice.  Had the 70-300L not been an option, I imagine I would have been happy with the 70-300 II.
