6.5-280 RCBS 30 Degree

I was wondering if anyone out there is/use to shoot this round. I have a action and barrel ready to go and was researching cartridges and ran across this one and it is bascially exactly what I want. I was originally thinking a 6.5-06 30 degree... but this is basically the same. I don't want a 40 degree AI ether.

I know about the 6.5-284, the 6.5-06 and all the other 6.5's, so I don't need info on them.

I was also wondering If anyone knows if you can get say a 280 AI Redding S bushing die and put in a .264 (.2XX, whatever it need be) sized collet for neck sizing? I have not used any of the collet dies so I'm not quite up to par on them. I have a vickerman seater so I'm not worried there.

Any info would be great.

Not sure if this thread(See the link below) will be useful to you but I have plans to work a rifle up similarly and had it in my subscribed to list........Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

I will be subscribing to this thread as well,

We are very close to this point now.
