I agree about the belted mags - All you have to do is have the belt portion of your chamber extended on a belted mag so that the cartridge belt doesn't touch, then it head spaces of the shoulder - Or - turn the belt on the case off... I did this with a 7 mag that had poor acurracy and it fixed it.

OK, ?? for the 6.5-06 AI fans:

-- Am I correct that the blownout 6.5-06 AI will absolutely not chamber in a 25-06?

-- The 6.5-06 AI come close to 264 Win Mag right? And exceeds the 6.5/284 by 100-200 fps in most bullet weights?

-- The fatter case in the AI, plus the more severe shoulder will at least theoretically affect magazine and feeding. Any experience about ammount and modifications to the existing 25-06 magazine and feed rails?

I did some more reading and the 6.5-06 AI sounded attractive in many ways. A little more omph than the 6.5-284 and I happen to have about 500 rounds of 25-06 brass, 250 of which are new unfired........

I would be looking at potentially at having GA Precision truing the action, working the bolt, putting a Bartlein barrel at at least 26", in heavy sporter sort of weight, no more than 28" Might go 27" just cause I cannot decide....

I really want max accuracy, in a carry weight rifle. I know, cannot have everything in this world, but never hurts to try....

Remingtion chambers there long actions all the way up to 338 Lapua mag so your little 6.5 based wild cat is going to fit fine. You may need a wayatts extended box mag to have your rifle function as a repeter.
