I'm planning on building one very similar to yours, just not sure of the reamer just yet. I've been reading a lot about what GAP has been doing with the 6.5 SAUM, and I think this will be a larger version of it. I'm wanting 3050-3100 fps, with the 190 gr Matrix, and 26" barrel. I'm thinking it will be a fairly light load (psi) for much longer barrel life. Be sure and post your rifle and load after it's finished.
