When the 7mm STW first came out we used 8mm brass necked down and after a couple
of years brass became available.
In the early years there were guys necking the 8mm down to .308 cal
and calling it a 30 super.
later lane came up with the 358 STE ( a 8mm necked up to 35 cal.
All of these will work in your action with out any bolt work or rail mods.
I don't think Going down to 6.5 would be an advantage over the 7mm.
The 8mm mag is a great Elk rifle but bullet selection is poor.
The 7mmSTW would be my choice with that receiver .
