If your wanting down right velocity and don't mind fire forming, go with the 6.5 Gibbs, a 30" barrel tapored to .950" at the muzzle with an 8 twist.
Use the 142 gr Sierra MK, JLK or Berger bullets and you won't need a muzzle brake
You can get Norma 270 brass to form the Gibbs and Ray will put the 270 length chamber in for you.
Make sure when you fire form that you seat the bullets far out in the case neck and HARD into the lands so it forces the base of the case back against the bolt face.
There are other ways to fire form and Ray will explain when your rifle is finished.
You will be amazed at the productivity of that round. It is a flat shooter that will stay right with a 264 Mag
