I reload and have a boss press so case forming is not a problem... I also do not have an issue with putting a block in the mag to use short action cases... As i have all ready done that with a 22-250 build
Thanks in advance for the help
I would look at the 280 if your looking for something that will fit and function in the 3006 action
with little or no modifications.
With the wide range of bullets in .284 (7mm) it is very versatile and accurate.
Also there is lots of loading data and accessories for the 280 and also factory ammo.
The 280 rem is a winner and would fill your needs for a target and hunting rifle .
