There are a lot of good recomendations by the members so far and based on the comment
about not having to fire form brass I would recomend that you look at the 260 remingtion
(6.5 / 308).
This is a great round that has won many 1000yrd matches and factory ammo is available.
A good selection of bullets for hunting big game, varments and target shooting are available.
So you would need a 6.5mm #4 or #5 lilja contour 24'' to 26'' long and a good smith to put it
together and there are plenty on this site.
Just my opinion
