    Look up the 240 Gibbs and the 243 catbird. Both are pretty much what you are thinking of.

    With the short barrel check out the 243 AI. Barrel life is longer. I have the 240 gibbs and 6mm-06 improved along with a few more.

    Most of mine are built on long actions to seat the long heavy vld type bullets way out there and feed well through the action. With standard length bullets it works fine with a short action.
