Re: 6.5 rem mag necked up to .30 cal?
When I rebarreled a gun to 6.5 rem mag a friend asked me to take a case and step it up to 30 caliber for him to see how it would look. I recall that it held about the same amount of powder as a 30-06 or 30-06AI case.
Guess it would be sorta novel as a short action 30-06 but you would have problems with the bullet intruding on powder space if you were not careful. We decided that it would not show any advantages over his 30-06AI and would not be up to 300 WSM performance.
